“The separatists also exploit every possible situation to agitate the people to fan further anti-India sentiments which lead to law and order situation,” said Rajnath Singh. He, however, added that the stone pelting incidents in the valley have declined.

The Home Minister also said that financing from across the border for militants and separatists is a cause of concern.
"Terror infrastructure in Pakistan and PoK remains in the form of training camps, launching pads and communication control stations. Financing from across the border for militants and separatists is also a cause of concern,” Said Rajnath in another tweet.
He said Pakistan has been perpetrating terrorist activities on Indian soil from Jammu and Kashmir to Punjab. The security situation in the hinterland and in Jammu and Kashmir continues to be vitiated.
The state of Jammu and Kashmir is currently under the President's rule.
On Sunday, authorities imposed restrictions in Pulwama and parts of Srinagar districts of Jammu and Kashmir as a precautionary measure in view of the strike called by separatists against the killing of seven civilians during an encounter on Saturday.
The officials said the restrictions were imposed as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order and avoid any untoward incident.
Separatists under the banner of Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Saturday called for a strike across Kashmir on Sunday against the killing of the civilians.
The JRL - comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik — also asked people to march to the headquarters of the Army’s Chinar Corps at Badamibagh.
Seven civilians were killed and several others injured after security forces allegedly opened fire on protestors near an encounter site in Sirnoo village of Pulwama district of south Kashmir on Saturday.
