Curfew remained in force in Srinagar for the 92nd day today after a 12-year-old was killed by a barrage of pellets when forces opened fire to disperse a protest rally. Junaid Ahmad, a resident of Saidpora in downtown Srinagar, succumbed to his injuries at a hospital after being hit by a shower of pellets outside his home.
Security forces fired teargas shells as people marched with his body towards a burial ground near the city’s Eidgah.
More than 90 people have died and 10,000 injured in clashes between security forces and protesters since the killing Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani in July.
