Srinagar: One person was killed on Saturday in clashes between security personnel and protesters who attacked a police post in Kupwara as protests were held in some parts of the curfew-bound Valley in the violence since last week.
A mob attacked a police post at Hatmulla in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district Saturday afternoon following which the security personnel retaliated. One person was killed and two injured in the incident, a police official said.
With this the death toll in the violence that followed the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani has mounted to 43 while over 3500 persons including 1,500 security personnel have been injured.
Minor protests were reported from some parts of the Valley but the protesters were chased away by security personnel who resorted to baton charge, the official said.
“The situation across Kashmir Valley today remained relatively peaceful. No major incident was reported from anywhere in the Valley,” he said. (Agencies)
