1 killed, 2 injured in Kashmir violence

Amidst the ongoing tensions in the valley, the first Kashmiri who topped the civil services examinations, Shah Faesal, on Friday, lashed out at the media for "pitching one Kashmiri against another and breeding more alienation" in the valley rocked by violence over the killing of militant leader Burhan Wani.

More than 120 persons have received pellet injuries in eyes and many of them have lost their eyesight.

Suspected militants in a south Kashmir village shot at and injured two persons, including a relative of an arrested aide of Wani, police sources said. They strongly condemned the ban which, they said, "is not only reprehensible but also against the norms of a democratic set up".

He said the central government will examine the state government's demand for allocation of extra 4.30 lakh million tonnes of foodgrains "at lower rates".

More than 32 people have been killed and over 1,000 injured in disputed Indian-administered Kashmir in days of deadly clashes between government forces and demonstrators angered by the killing of a popular young rebel. It has sought an additional 4.30 lakh tonnes of grain at lower rates.
