Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday said that most restrictions have been lifted including the internet services and the situation is fully normal in the union territory.

Jammu and Kashmir DGP Dilbag Singh was quoted as complimenting police, the Army and the Central Armed Police Force for their "highly professional handling of the ground situation".

Taking to Twitter, Jammu and Kashmir Police said, "Most of the restrictions are eased including the Internet and situation is fully normal in both regions of Kashmir and Jammu but under close watch."

Following the death of hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani last week, restrictions were imposed and internet and mobile services were suspended immediately.

On the first Friday after Geelani's death, apart from snapping of internet services, all major mosques and shrines were shut to prevent protests or in absentia holding of funeral prayers.

Last Wednesday, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti had informed that Geelani passed away at the age of 91.

His family alleged they were not allowed to participate in the last rites after the police broke down doors, mistreated family members and forcibly took away the body.

"Police took away the body. We wanted a burial in the morning but they refused. They broke open the doors and misbehaved with the family," Naseem Geelani, his son, said.

The police defended the move by posting video clips of his burial during which all Islamic rites were observed.

These videos posted by the J&K Police have shown that the body of Geelani was given proper ablution, was wrapped in white shroud and lowered into the grave amid recitation of verses from the holy Quran.
