Burhan Wani

Students hold a banner displaying pictures of rebel leader Burhan Wani during a protest inside a university campus on the outskirts of Srinagar. Authorities imposed restrictions in some parts of Srinagar after separatists called for a strike making the death anniversary of Kashmiri rebel leader Burhan Wani who was killed by security forces on July 8, 2016.
