A day after Army claimed to have killed seven unidentified militants at Dardpora forests, massive protests erupted in North Kashmir’s Lalpora area in support of the demand for bodies. More than ten civilians including a few journalists were also injured after police used lathicharge and tear smoke shells to disperse the protestors. Two of the injured villagers are stated to be in critical condition.
The villagers alleged that Army had killed the seven men in a fake encounter that took place in the forest area on Monday.
People took to the streets and held protests outside Lalpora police station. Angry villagers also pelted stones at the police station after police refused to handover bodies of the slain militants to them. The protestors later set bunkers and the main gate of the police station on fire.
