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.
The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.
We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.
We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.
The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
