SRINAGAR: Making life of Kashmiris more miserable on Eid, India has imposed curfew in all of 10 districts in the occupied valley.

According to media reports this is for the first time in many years that all the 10 districts were under curfew on Eid.

Eid congregations were not allowed at the Eidgah and Hazratbal shrines in Srinagar.

Mobile internet and cell phone services have been blocked ahead of Eid, the second such disruption since July 9, the day after security services shot dead Burhan Wani.

Nearly 100 protesters have been killed and more than 7,000 wounded in clashes since July in the worst violence in six years in the disputed territory.

On Tuesday, Kashmiri leaders are scheduled to march to the United Nations Military Observers Group India Pakistan (UNMOGIP) Office in Srinagar.
