Most restrictions have been eased, and mobile internet connection has been successfully restored in most parts of Jammu and Kashmir, the J&K Police said on Tuesday. The development comes four days after hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, 92, died in Srinagar.
“Most of the restrictions are eased including the Internet, and the situation is fully normal in both regions of Kashmir and Jammu but under close watch,” Jammu & Kashmir Police said in its latest bulletin.
Voice calls and mobile internet was suspended till 5 PM on September 6 in Jammu and Kashmir to keep a vigilance after bizarre incidents were reported at some places. However, last evening, the police said that internet services were restored in eight of the ten districts in the Kashmir valley on Monday.
Director-General of Jammu and Kashmir Police Dilbag Singh earlier complimented the Police CAPF and Army deployments for the highly professional handling of the ground situation over the last five days, following the death of the senior separatist leader.
Geelani died last Wednesday night at his residence here after a prolonged illness. The body was laid to rest at a graveyard in a nearby mosque.

Notification allowing women to take NDA exam to be released by May 2022: Defence Ministry to SC
The Defence Ministry told the Supreme Court that a notification allowing women candidates to appear for the entrance exam to the National Defence Academy (NDA) will be out by May 2022.
Earlier, the ministry had said that a decision has been taken to allow the induction of women into the Armed Forces through the NDA.
Filing an affidavit, the ministry said that keeping the timeline in mind, deliberate planning and meticulous preparation is needed to ensure smooth induction and seamless training of such women candidates.
“The Government of India, in line with its commitment, hereby place on record its clear and categorical stand that the women candidates shall be considered for entry in the three defence services, in the existing streams, through National Defence Academy,” the affidavit stated.
It further said that the NDA entrance exams are held twice a year and the government proposes to have the necessary mechanism in place by May 2022, the time by which the UPSC is required to publish the first notification next year, for the exam.
The affidavit also stated that a study group has been constituted by the Defence services comprising experts to expeditiously formulate a curriculum for women cadets at the NDA and a Board of Officers has been convened to frame a futuristic proposal for training of women cadets at NDA incorporating all relevant aspects.
“Any dilution of physical training and service subject like firing, etc. would invariably impact the battle worthiness of the Armed Forces adversely,” it added.
It also stated the need to have a robust physical separation between male and female residential areas for which new residential facilities have to be developed to accommodate the women candidates including bathroom cubicles with modifications to maintain privacy.
“Some time is needed to construct additional bathrooms, cabins, training facilities and develop curriculum for the new joinees,” the Ministry of Defence told the apex court.
“Only medically fit candidates meeting the selection criteria are allowed to join the Academy. They are also required to meet laid down medical standards. While medical standards for male cadets are in place, appropriate medical standards for women candidates are in the process of formulation. The same needs to be done before they join,” the affidavit added.
A Bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul had asked the ministry to put the statement of inducting women into the Armed Forces through the NDA, on record through an affidavit
