Hundreds of people were attending a locally called pro-freedom rally in North Kashmir’s Sopore area.

Reports and eye witnesses said that a local unit of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat had called for Seer Jageer ‘Chalo’ today.

“Hundreds of people had reached and others were on way to the rally venue,” reports said. The venue of the freedom rally was a public ground in Seer Jageer where tents had been installed and public addressing (PA) systems set up.

“People marched from Amargah, By-pass, Seer, Delina, Darpora, Sangrama and other adjoining areas towards the venue,” the local reports said.

“However, police and CRPF men raided the venue around 2 PM and fired tear gas shells dispersing off the people,” reports added. “They brought down tents and took away the PA System and forcing faithful to offer prayers inside Masjids.”

Reports suggest that at least three civilians were injured in the tear gas shelling by forces. “Protest erupted in the area following the raid,” reports added.
