A viral video on social media debunks the police claim that a youth died in a road accident Saturday while it shows a police bunker vehicle crushing the stone-throwing youth to death during clashes at Noorbagh area of Srinagar, local daily Rising Kashmir reported. The protests erupted in response to an ongoing encounter in Chattabal area of Srinagar in which three Lashkar-e-Toiba militants were killed.
The youth was identified as Adil Ahmad from Gasi Mohalla Safa Kadal.

Chairman Hurriyat (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said the youth was “murdered and later denied by forces.”
