A protesting youth was killed and 10 others were injured in clashes between an unruly mob and security forces in Kashmir’s Bandipora district on Tuesday.

The police said a mob gathered in the town after Eid prayers, and resorted to violence against the deployed forces.

“The youth identified as Murtaza, 25, died in the clashes. Security forces used smoke and pellets to disperse the mob,” police said.

The deaths in the Kahsmir in the summer of clashes between security forces and protesters has risen to 84.

Authorities have imposed a curfew in all the 10 districts of the Kashmir Valley to prevent large-scale violence.

No major Eid congregation was allowed anywhere.

Separatists had asked the people to march to the Sonwar headquarters of the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) in Srinagar after the prayers.
