Anantnag encounter: Train, mobile internet services suspended in Anantnag


Train service on Srinagar-Banihal route and vice versa and mobile internet services  were suspended in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district after an encounter broke out in the main town early Tuesday morning.

Reports said that suspensions were placed by authorities as a precautionary measure to avoid any law and order situation.

Earlier, restrictions were imposed in parts of Anantnag town to foil any possible protests as a  gun-battle is underway between militants and the government forces in the heart of the Anantnag town.

Curbs have been put in place on the movement of people in several localities of Lal Chowk in the main town Anantnag, where two   Lashkar-e-Toiba militants are engaged in a gunfight with government forces.

Mehmaan Mohalla, where the encounter started during early  hours of Wednesday , has been placed under siege by government forces.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
