Authorities imposed curfew in parts of Srinagar on Saturday following clashes during the funeral of a 13-year-old boy who died of pellet injuries. Junaid Ahmad Bhat of Saidpora area here was admitted to a hospital with pellet injuries on Friday. He died on Saturday morning.
Hundreds of protesters, carrying Bhat’s body, clashed with the security forces in Eidgah area, with the latter using tear smoke shells to disperse the mourners. As trouble spread to other areas of Srinagar, authorities quickly imposed curfew in areas falling under seven police stations here.
Tension once again gripped the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, where private transport and pedestrian movement had nearly normalised during the last one week. Ruling Peoples Democratic Party General Secretary Nizamuddin Bhat has demanded a probe into the boy’s death.
