Jammu and Kashmir: India reimposes movement curbs on parts of Srinagar after clashes
Updated : August 18, 2019 07:30 PM IST
In the past 24 hours, there has been a series of protests against New Delhi's Aug. 5 revocation of the region's autonomy. This followed an easing in curbs on movement on Saturday morning.
Two senior government officials told Reuters that at least two dozen people were admitted to hospitals with pellet injuries after violent clashes broke out in the old city on Saturday night.
The heavy overnight clashes took place mostly in Rainawari, Nowhetta and Gojwara areas of the old city where Indian troops fired tear smoke, chilly grenades and pellets to disperse protesters, eyewitnesses and officials said.
