Srinagar: Two persons killed and three others injured in firing by security forces in Anantnag district in south Kashmir, according to police.
Fresh clashes on Tuesday broke out between locals protesting the killing of youths in alleged CRPF firing and security forces in parts of Srinagar, Baramulla and Anantnag districts, leaving 13 people injured.
With violence spreading to more places, curfew was imposed this morning in parts of Baramulla, Anantnag and seven police station areas of Srinagar as the situation remained tense in troubled Sopore in the wake of the protests.
In view of the violence, mobile services in north Kashmir and SMS service in the entire valley were blocked on the instructions of the state government.
With separatists giving fresh calls for strike, life remained crippled across Kashmir valley, including Srinagar, for the fifth consecutive day on Tuesday.
In Anantnag, 65 kms from here, locals assembled at a bus stand and protested against the killings. Paramilitary forces deployed in the town initially cane charged them but when they refused to budge, they opened fire resulting in death of two persons and injuries to three persons including a teenager identified as Irshiad Ahmad Bhat.
He suffered a bullet injury in one of his legs at the Mattan bus stand, a police spokesman said. He said Bhat was admitted to a hospital where doctors described his condition as stable.
The spokesman said people also took to the streets in K P Road in Anantnag but there was no report of any casualty in the clashes that ensued between the protestors and law enforcing agencies.
In Srinagar, agitators staged protest demonstrations in Maisuma area, Zaldager, Galwanpora, the airport road, Nund Resh Colony, Boatman colony in Bemina, Batmaloo and HMT Zainakote, he said. Five persons were injured in the clashes.
In Baramulla town of north Kashmir where a teenager was killed yesterday, people staged demonstrations in the town, Delina and Khanpora and clashed with security forces resulting in injuries to five persons, he said.
Additional contingents of police and paramilitary forces were deployed in curfew-bound Sopore and other areas to maintain calm, police sources said.
Two persons died and 65 others, including 32 policemen, were injured in the violent clashes in various parts of the valley yesterday. One of the two persons killed was a native of Baramulla.
Curfew, which was restricted to Sopore town since June 25, has been extended to Baramulla as authorities apprehended trouble, police said.
While hardline faction of Hurriyat Conference headed by jailed leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has given a call for a two-day strike, the moderate Hurriyat Conference led by Mirwaiz Umer Farooq has asked people to come on streets to protest the killing of youths by security forces in Sopore and Baramulla.
Clashes between protestors and security forces have claimed the lives of five persons since June 25 and eight in the last three weeks in the valley.
