Another youth allegedly killed in CRPF firing in Srinagar

By Devaki

Srinagar, July 6 (ANI): One person was killed in Srinagar on Tuesday morning when the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) allegedly opened fire after protesters once again indulged in stone pelting.

The youth named Fayaz Ahmed died in firing during clashes between stone pelter and security forces in Tengpora.

The protesters were agitating against the killing of another youth in the area last night.

The situation in the area was tense and additional police forces were rushed to calm down the situation.

Meanwhile, authorities announced closure of schools and educational institutions in the city today.

Markets also remained closed.

The incident comes just days after Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said that stone pelting won't have an impact on redrawing the boundaries of the State.

The situation in the valley has been tense over the past weeks due to repeated clashes between protestors and the security forces.

In the last three weeks, around 13 people have been killed in the police firing. (ANI)
