50 hurt in violence in Kashmir valley


Anantnag, October 31: At least 50 people, including women, were injured in clashes between locals and the police in Rohmoo village of Pulwama district in south today.

Three of the injured, including two girls, have been shifted to Srinagar with pellet injuries on their eyes. People started protesting against the police. “The police and security forces used tear-gas shells and pellet guns to disperse people leaving at least 50 people injured,” sources said, adding that the injured were treated at different hospitals.

A doctor at the Pulwama district hospital said they had shifted at least three persons, including two girls, to Srinagar for specialized treatment. Later, clashes erupted in many other parts of the district.

A police spokesman in Srinagar said some persons, police and CRPF personnel, including three officers, were injured in the incident. Most of the injured were discharged after first aid, he added. The incident took place when security forces cordoned off Rohomoo village. This made miscreants throw stones on the forces. “Later, a huge mob assembled and threw stones on the security forces' camp,” the police said.

Elsewhere in the Valley, the overall situation remained peaceful amid the shutdown called by separatists and restrictions in major towns on the day 115 of the unrest today. There was no curfew in any part of the Valley, officials said.

Some miscreants hurled a petrol bomb near the sub-district hospital at Sopore in Baramulla district, the police said. A manhunt has been launched to arrest the miscreants.

An increased movement of pedestrians and vehicles was witnessed on the city roads and other major towns of the Valley. The footpath vendors have been lining up all major road intersections and some of the markets along different roads, particularly the posh Residency Road from TRC crossing to Lal Chowk and also up to Batamaloo here. A large number of private vehicles and autorickshaws have been moving in different parts of the city and other major towns in the Valley, giving a semblance of normalcy.
