JAMMU, INDIA, July 10, 2016 (Hindustan Times): The Amarnath Yatra remained suspended for the second day on Sunday due to security measures in the valley following the death of top Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on Friday.

"No yatri will be allowed to move from Bhagwati Nagar Yatri Niwas in Jammu to the Kashmir Valley on Sunday due to the prevailing law and order situation there," a senior police officer said in Jammu. "Although the passage of yatris from Jammu to the valley was disallowed due to security reasons, those who had already reached the yatra base camps of Baltal and Nunwan (Pahalgam), continued the yatra on Saturday," the officer added.

Meanwhile, authorities on Sunday suspended mobile internet services in the entire Jammu region to check the spread of rumors following heightened tensions in the Kashmir Valley, after Hizbul's poster boy and 21-year old separatist leader Burhan Wani was killed in a gunfight with the security forces in Anantnag. "There is complete peace in the entire Jammu region. Mobile internet services have been suspended as a precautionary measure," the police officer said.
