Srinagar, Sep 7 (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir is tense again after four youths were killed and about seventeen injured in clashes with security forces on Monday.

Curfew has been clamped in eight police station areas of Srinagar city as violent protests continued till late last night.

Several police stations were attacked by angry protesters.

According to sources, several youths came out onto the streets after Taraweeh prayers (special night prayers offered in the month of Ramzan) and started pelting stones at police stations.

Among the four killed was a Class IX student.

The Kashmir Valley violence has led authorities to impose frequent curfew restrictions across the State.

Curfew was initially imposed on June 30 in parts of northern and southern Kashmir to stop demonstrations over the death of a couple of protestors.

It was lifted some days later, but was again imposed as fresh violence erupted. (ANI)
