Kashmir valley continued to reel under curfew and restrictions for the 48th consecutive day on Friday after protest broke out following killing of Hizbul Mujahideen popular commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani, PTI reported.

A youth was injured on Thursday after he was hit by a tear-gas shell fired by forces on Thursday in north Kashmir’s Bandipora area.

Earlier, clashes erupted in the Kaloosa area of the district when youths tried to hold a protest rally against the civilian killings in Kashmir. However, a huge posse of police and paramilitary forces intercepted them and fired several tear smoke shells.

The clashes continued for hours resulting in the injuries of dozens of protesters, including government forces personnel.

Mobile Internet also continued to remain suspended in the entire Valley, whereas outgoing facility on prepaid mobiles remained barred.
