Srinagar, Jul 31: The civilian death toll in the fresh outbreak of violence in Kashmir has gone up to five with the death of a teenager on Saturday, Jul 31.

Police said that a 17-year old girl was killed when security forces fired at protestors, who attacked a CRPF patrol that was enforcing curfew in Kreeri in Pattan.

The situation reportedly got out of hand when people tried to snatch the rifles of the CRPF jawans, prompting the security personnel to open fire.

A total of 10 people were injured in the violence across the valley as protesters tried to set a railway station on fire and clashed with security forces who fired to quell the crowds.

The authorities have imposed indefinite curfew in major towns of the Kashmir Valley.
