SRINAGAR: At least 45 people were injured on Friday as fresh clashes broke out between stone-throwing mobs and security forces in the Kashmir Valley where curfew was lifted in all places, except Kupwara district.
The clashes erupted at Shopian in south Kashmir, Sopore and Tangmarg in the north and Soura, Nowhatta and Sabzi Mandi in Srinagar.
The majority of the protesters were injured in Shopian, 55 km from here, as they took to the streets and engaged the security forces in pitched battles since the morning.
The residents staged a demonstration in front of the office of the Deputy Commissioner.
They were asked to disperse, but they refused and started throwing stones at the security personnel, who used pellet guns after teargas shells and lathi-charge proved futile. — PTI
