Srinagar, Sep 17: The violence in Kashmir  continues to be grim on Friday, Sep 17, that has killed two persons and injured eight despite curfew for the sixth consecutive day.

The incident occurred when security forces allegedly opened fire to quell stone-pelting mobs in Budgam district of central Kashmir.

The situation in the area remains tense as hundreds of people have gathered on the roads to protest against the security forces firing, sources said.
