Srinagar: Minor clashes between government forces and youth took place at Habba Kadal today evening. Many youth assembled outside a local mosque in Habba Kadal soon after evening prayers and started throwing stones at a nearby CRPF bunker.
The forces resorted to tear-gas shelling to disperse the youth. Within minutes, the entire area was engulfed in smoke, forcing people to stay indoors.
There was, however, no report of injury from either side.
