Two persons were injured on friday as security forces fired teargas shells and used batons to chase away stone-pelting protesters at different places in Srinagar and Baramulla districts of Kashmir valley, police said.

Azad Ahmad Mir was hit by a teargas shell on the head during a clash between stone-pelting protesters and law enforcing agencies at Bomai village in Sopore township of Baramulla district, a police officer said.

He said the clashes broke out shortly after security forces killed two militants holed up in the village during a cordon and search operations. Intense clashes between stone-pelting youth and security forces also rocked Jamia Masjid and adjoining areas in Srinagar shortly after Friday prayers.

Both factions of Hurriyat Conference and JKLF had jointly called for protests after Friday prayers against the alleged fake encounter in Kud, new Industrial policy and separate settlements for Kashmiri Pandits and Sainik colonies.

Police said a militant and a woman were killed and three others injured in a gunfight after security forces intercepted a Jammu-bound passenger vehicle for checking near Kud on Monday.

Hailing from Bemina locality of Srinagar, the family of the slain youth Tanvir Sultan claimed that he was not a militant but a psychiatric patient since 1997 and had left for Amritsar on June 13 for the treatment of his shoulder injury.
