Four youth and a policeman were injured on Friday during clashes in Sopore town of Baramulla district in northern part of Kashmir.
Witnesses and reports said that clashes erupted in the town after forces attempted to disperse youth who had assembled soon after Friday prayers near Markazi jamia Masjid Sopore to protest against civilian killings in Chadoora.
They said that forces used teargas shells to disperse the protesters who in turn pelted stones on them.
The joint resistance leadership has called for “peaceful protests” after Friday prayers against the Chadoora civilian killings.
Three civilians were killed in forces’ firing near the site of an encounter in Durbugh village of Chadoora.
