Protests in Indian-held Kashmir, participants chanted slogans in favour of Pakistan, also waved flag

SRINAGAR: Violent protests erupted in India-held Kashmir following a civilian and a militant were killed in an encounter with the army, local media reported on Wednesday.

Two men were killed in military operations late on Monday, said Nitish Kumar, a police official. He gave no other details of the encounter, which took place near the southern town of Tral.

Relatives and angry locals disputed that version, saying the civilian was tortured to death. One of the men who was killed was a known militant and the other a civilian who was the brother of a militant, Kumar said.

They also chanted slogans in favor of Pakistan in disputed Kashmir while they also waved Pakistani flag in Indian occupied area.
