Some intellectuals in Kashmir believe that all parties-the separatist as well as those in the mainstream-need to come together and facilitate the return of peace. 

Srinagar: Two persons were killed and at least four CRPF personnel injured in fresh violence in the Kashmir Valley despite imposition of curfew and restrictions in several parts.

In Narbal on the outskirts of Srinagar, a mob surrounded CRPF buses and fired at the security personnel in which four of them sustained bullet injuries. In the retaliatory fire, one person was killed, police said.

In another incident, a group pelted stones at a CRPF team in Anantnag. The CRPF personnel tried to disperse the crowd using teargas shells but this did not dissuade the protestors who also tried to snatch weapons. One person was killed in the firing, police said.

Authorities had imposed curfew and restrictions in various parts of the Valley which saw widespread trouble yesterday in which four people were killed in police firing.

Stray incidents of violence were reported from Sopore.

In adjacent Bomai, a mob tried to set afire a police station but was prevented by security forces, police said, adding some one from the crowd fired at the police party injuring a constable.

A five-year-old girl suffered eye injuries when a group of protestors pelted stones at her vehicle in Valtengu village of South Kashmir today. The girl, Rohana, was on her way to Srinagar for a medical check-up, police said.

Elsewhere, 20-year-old Firdous Ahmad Khan received minor injuries when he fell down on a stone when a group of people were pelting stones at a security force convoy at Singhpora in Pattan in Baramulla district this morning.

At least seven persons, including four policemen, were injured in a clash between the police and a group of protestors in the premises of sacred Hazratbal shrine on the outskirts of Srinagar.
