On the 43rd day of unrest in Jammu and Kashmir, postpaid mobile services have finally been restored in the Valley on 20 August.

According to media reports, prepaid and internet services remain suspended.

Meanwhile, curfew remained in force in Srinagar district and two south Kashmir towns for the 43rd day, following unrest in the wake of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani's death 8 July.

"Curfew is in force in entire Srinagar district, Anantnag town and Pampore town as a precautionary measure," a police official said.

The separatist camp has called for an "Azadi march" to district headquarters on 20 August as part of their protest schedule.

Schools, colleges, and private offices remained closed while public transport remained off roads. The attendance in government offices was thin.

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah-led all-party delegation will meet President Pranab Mukherjee on 20 August to apprise him of the prevailing situation in the Valley.

The decision came at a meeting attended by members of the National Conference, Congress, Communist Party, Democratic Party Front, Awami Ittehad Party and People's Democratic Front on Wednesday.
