Authorities are likely to suspend mobile internet services in Kashmir Valley to check spreading of rumours by anti-social elements following the killing of Kashmir’s most wanted militant Sazar Ahmad by the security forces.  Jammu and Kashmir police chief Dr S.P Vaid while talking to Brighter Kashmir said mobile internet likely to be suspended for security reasons.
Besides, the authorities also imposed restriction in the entire district of Pulwama and in the towns of Ananatnag, Shopian, Pulgam and Sopore, officials said here.
Forces have shot down Sabzar Ahmad Bhat, a top Hizbul Mujahideen commander, in an encounter in Pulwama’s Tral that has been going on since Friday.
Apart from Bhat, another militant has been killed and at least one is believed to be trapped in the area under barrage of heavy fire from the Indian security forces.
The encounter has been going on since Friday night after Hizbul militants ambushed an Army patrol party of 42 Rashtriya Rifles at Saimooh village in Tral around 9pm.
He said, “Forgive me if I’m wrong. We have been cordoned.”According to reports, Sabzar made a final phone call to his family members when he got injured and asked for forgiveness.
