The internet and mobile networks except of BSNL are going to shut operations for 72 hours in the state.
Normal life remained paralysed for the 66th consecutive day in the unrest-hit Valley where 78 persons have been killed and several thousands injured in the violence which erupted after Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani was gunned down by security forces.
The authorities have also imposed restrictions on the movement and assembly of people in some areas on the eve of Eid-ul-Azha
Restrictions have been imposed in some of the towns in Kashmir as well as in three police station areas of Srinagar, a police official said here. He said restrictions have been imposed in the towns of Ganderbal, Kupwara, Baramulla, Budgam, Shopian, Kulgam, Pulwama and Anantnag.
