The authorities in Jammu and Kashmir today restored all internet services in the Valley, two days after the facilities were snapped due to apprehensions of law-and-order problems on the first death anniversary of Hizbul Mujahideen "commander" Burhan Wani.

While Indian authorities in Kashmir labelled him an extremist, his supporters called him a rebel leader.
