Graffiti eulogising Burhan Wani comes up in Srinagar

Officials said that a total of 31 civilians and a policeman have been killed in the latest clashes in Kashmir valley, where random protests were being reported despite strict curfew restrictions. Over 1,500 people have been injured, many of them critically.

The Kashmir has been on the edge after security forces killed Burhan (22), and two of his associates in a south Kashmir village.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has held an emergency meeting to discuss the intensifying violence in Kashmir.

The Valley's apex business chamber, Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry in a statement said that KCCI was deeply concerned about the loss of innocent lives and injuries suffered by hundreds of civilians post killing of Burhan Muzaffar Wani by the forces.

Curfew-like restrictions were clamped over the state of Jammu and Kashmir for the fourth consecutive day on July 12 following angry protests over the killing of a terrorist on July 8.

The state government has urged the Kashmiri separatist groups to appeal to people for calm and peace. "They reflect Pakistan's continued attachment to terrorism and its usage as an instrument of State policy", an Indian Foreign Ministry statement said.

The ruling alliance partner also said those indulging in violence in the Valley are getting discreet support from Pakistan and that the neighbouring country is responsible for the hostile situation prevalent there.

Kashmiri villagers carry placards and shout freedom slogans during a protest on the outskirts of Srinagar, Indian controlled Kashmir, Wednesday, July 13, 2016.

On the Indian side of the Muslim-majority region, most people resent the Indian troop presence and back rebel demands for independence or a merger with neighboring Pakistan.

Kashmir has been divided between rivals India and Pakistan since 1947, but both claim the territory in its entirety. Police said several hundred protesters tried to storm an Indian Air Force base about 25 kilometres (15 miles) south of the capital Srinagar as the worst civilian unrest since 2010 spread.
