Clashes at funeral of man mowed by CRPF vehicle in J&K

Kashmir unrest as protester run over by police dies

Amid rising tensions over the incident, large contingents of J&K police and Central forces were fanned out across Srinagar on Saturday to enforce a security lockdown. "They attempted to move out of there and had they not done that, they would have been overpowered and lynched", he said, adding that the officer was accompanied by four escort personnel and a driver.

NDTV is one of the leaders in the production and broadcasting of un-biased and comprehensive news and entertainment programmes in India and overseas. Kashmiri separatists, who called his death "plain murder" and called for a shutdown across Kashmir, were placed under house arrest, according to news agency PTI. Hundreds of people on Saturday marched towards and gathered near a graveyard in Eidgah grounds here to offer a congregational funeral prayer. The authorities also snapped internet and mobile services in Srinagar and Badgam districts besides suspending rail service between north Kashmir's Baramulla and the Bannihal town in Jammu region.

"Security forces are soft targets for these politicians but they can't speak against the militants as they can strike back", the BJP MP from Udhampur said. Dozens of tear-smoke shells and pellets were fired to chase them away. Ahmed's family said he had not been pelting stones and was heading home to the nearby Fatehkadal area on his motorbike.

Most Kashmiris support the rebels' cause while also participating in civilian street protests against Indian control. India-controlled Kashmir is part of Jammu and Kashmir state.

Residents said the armoured vehicle in Friday's incident drove wildly into a crowd of anti-India protesters, slamming into a half-dozen people and crushing at least two men beneath its wheels, injuring them critically. On May 5, 22-year-old Adil Ahmad Yadoo, who was protesting against an encounter, was run over by a police vehicle.

The opposition National Conference working President Omar Abdullah hit out at chief minister Mehbooba Mufti over the incident.

Police sources said two cases under Sections 307,148,149,152,336,427 of the Ranbir Penal Code (RPC) and under Section 279 (rash driving), 337 of the RPC were registered in connection with the mob violence and the vehicle accident.
