#Day54: Intense Clashes Erupt In Old Srinagar; Two Photo-Journalists Injured



Hundreds of people came out in Old Srinagar on Wednesday forming a pro-freedom rally.

Reports said that people assembled in main Gojwara chowk and tried to march towards Nowhatta.

“But forces stationed near Jamia Masjid fired tear gas canisters to disperse off the protests,” they said.

“Intense pro-freedom sloganeering is going on this time,” an eye witness said.

The witnesses said that forces used “something” due to which protestors “almost fell unconscious”. “Is it PAVA?”

Meanwhile, residents of Gojwara have prepared Tehri which was distributed amongst the pro-freedom protestors.

More so, a newspaper report said that two senior photojournalists, Farooq Javed Khan and Waseem Andrabi, sustained injuries on Wednesday afternoon while covering heavy clashes between protesters and forces in Old Srinagar.

Khan, who works for EPA, has sustained injures in left shoulder while Andrabi, a Hindustan Times staffer, has sustained injures on rib cage.
