Clash with Indian Troops Injures About 100 Kashmir Students

There have been dire consequences for online dissenters

Tensions in the restive northern Indian state quickly snowballed after a video, showing the Indian army using a protester as a human shield by tying him in front of a jeep, went viral on social media. In Pulwama district of south Kashmir, the authorities had already announced closure of Degree College fearing protests but massive clashes erupted at Murran Chowk, Newa, Main Market, Pampore, Tral, Haal and in other areas between student protesters and government forces.

Mufti has also sought a report from Police about the surfacing of some videos in the valley, terming the acts in them as "unacceptable and atrocious".

On Saturday a street vendor was shot dead by India's Border Security Force and on Sunday three people were killed by suspected freedom fighters, one a former counter-insurgent.

Meanwhile, a 25-year-old youth who was injured on the day of by-poll to Srinagar-Budgam parliamentary constituency, passed away at a hospital in Srinagar last night, officials said, taking the toll of deceased civilians on the bloodied April 9 day to nine.

Monday's protests were called by Kashmir University's students union, a banned student body.
