Minor clashes broke out between protesters and government forces near Nowhata police station in Srinagar when angry protesters started throwing stones at police and paramilitary forces who were deployed outside the station, after Friday prayers.

Paramilitary forces and police fired a few tear smoke shells to disperse the protesters, that resulted in end of protests and the traffic movement restored within minutes.


The Hurriyat Confrance (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani had called for peaceful post-Friday prayers protests against government’s decision of making Kousar Nag another yatra destination. He has also called for shutdown on Saturday.
