Heavy tear-gas shelling on protest march in downtown

Srinagar:  Police and para-military forces shot tear-gas and pepper gas canisters on a protest march at Rajouri Kadal in downtown Srinagar after Friday prayers.

Eyewitnesses said that soon after Friday prayers in Jamia Masjid, hundreds took out a protest march against the killings of locals in four-month long agitation which was intercepted by the government forces at Rajouri Kadal.

“Tear-gas canisters were directly fired at the protesters. There is terrible stench in the entire area due to pepper gasses,” a local who was part of the protest march said.
