At least a dozen people were injured in clashes with government forces that were triggered after the killing of two militants in Budgam’s Panzan area

The killings of two militants lead  to massive protests in the area as  scores of people hit the streets and staged demonstrations to protest the killings.

Chanting slogans, the protesters hurled rocks on the government forces sparking off clashes. The government forces retaliated with  tear gas canisters and fired pellets to disperse protesters.

Among the injured four received  pellet injuries and were referred to Srinagar hospital for treatment.

Two unidentified militants were killed early Thursday morning after a fierce gunfight between militants and government forces broke out in central Kashmir’s Panzan area of district Budgam
