While Kashmir has remained on edge, the Indian and Pakistani armies, which regularly trade fire and blame across the de-facto militarized frontier that divides the disputed territory between them, fired at each other's positions, killing three civilians and an off-duty soldier, officials said.

India blames Pakistan-based militant groups for stoking the unrest in Kashmir. India blames Pakistan for fuelling the unrest, a claim denied by Islamabad.

"I've never seen so many soldiers in aggressive posturing enforcing a curfew in my town".

Ashok Behuria, fellow and coordinator, South Asia Centre, Institute for Defence Studies and Analysis, said, "We must re-federalise our states and empower local bodies". All routes leading to Tral town were sealed with barricades and coils of concertina wires.

"In view of the apprehensions of misuse of internet services by anti-national elements, which is likely to cause deterioration in law and order situation, you are directed to block all social media sites", the order reads.

Separatist leaders - a lot of them in jail or under house arrest - have called for strikes and protests to mark Wani's death, prompting the Indian government to take drastic measures.

All separatist leaders have been either placed under house arrest or taken into preventive custody.

They also surrounded the hometown of Burhan Wani, 22, who was killed fighting Indian troops a year ago.

"The continuous absence of political engagement in Kashmir and the continuous denial on part of Delhi that says there is nothing to be addressed politically has made the situation more complex in the past one year", according to Bukhari.

"Burhan Wani is the start of a new chapter in Kashmir's struggle for freedom", said the prime minister.

Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Saturday reiterated Pakistan's moral and diplomatic support to Kashmiri people and called upon the global community to honour its commitment for early resolution of the issue. "Today, 10,461 pilgrims paid obeisance at the Holy Cave and, cumulatively, since the beginning of the pilgrimage, 1,15,841 yatris have had darshan of the ice lingam", an official spokesman said.

Wani's death had led to widespread protests throughout the Valley resulting in the deaths of at least 78 people with many being injured.

Over 80 young men from these areas had taken to arms since the encounter, official sources from the state had said earlier. Train service has also been stopped amid fears that protests may erupt.
