#Day54: Protests In Bandipora



It is a bizarre situation in North Kashmir’s Bandipora district on Wednesday.

On Monday and Tuesday, Kaloosa area of the district witnessed massive clashes and many civilians were injured in the forces action. Youths had locked para-military forces in a government run 10+2 School in the area two days ago.

However, today, it was announced in the area there “there is no curfew”.

“I am unable to come out of my home,” a local said, “I could see through my window at least three cops manning each house in the area.”

The locals said that while cops have forced people to stay inside their homes, CRPF is manning the main roads.

“It is complete lockdown here,” the local said.

Meanwhile, protests erupted in main town Bandipora where youths came out on roads holding pro-freedom protests.

Forces fired tear gas shells to disperse them. The area is observing complete shutdown.
