Srinagar: Heavy deployments of security forces were made by authorities on Thursday in Srinagar and other places of the Kashmir Valley where life remained paralysed for the 69th consecutive day.

A senior police official said: "Heavy deployments of police and paramilitary forces have been made in Srinagar and other district headquarters of the valley to maintain law and order today (Thursday)".

The separatists continued their protest shutdown because of which public transport, main markets and other businesses have remained shut.

All schools, colleges and universities remained closed along with train services between Baramulla town and Jammu's Bannihal town also suspended.
