Meanwhile, internet facilities in the Kashmir Valley were suspended on Monday following the unprecedented protests by students, an official said.

"Internet facilities on all appliances have been shut," the official said, adding that the ban was imposed to prevent the uploading of pictures and videos from the protests.

Officials said that it appears that such videos were being circulated with an aim to create fear among people or show the security personnel in poor light.
