Protests erupt in Kashmir over removal of CRPF camp

Written by: Staff

Srinagar, Jul 7 (UNI) Protests erupted in some parts of Jammu and Kashmir's summer capital after Friday prayers today over the killing of a young physically challenged singer, allegedly by the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel, here on Saturday night.

The protests have continued unabated since the killing.

The people, mostly women, took a protest march and staged demonstrations against the killing of Inayatullah Bhat, a Kashmiri singer and the owner of Bakeway Bakery shop, immediately after the Friday prayers at Munawarabad and several other areas here.

The mourners chanted pro-freedom and anti-security forces slogans near the Ikhwan Hotel housing the CRPF's 46 battalion.

The protestors demanded removal of the CRPF camp from the Ikhwan hotel and strong action against the personnel who allegedly gunned down Bhat. A complete shutdown was also observed in Munawarabad and some other places in protest against the killing.
