Srinagar: At least three people, including a woman, were injured in clashes that broke out between a mob and the security forces after the Eid prayers in Jammu and Kashmir summer capital, police said. Clashes also took place in a few other places where mobs pelted stones at security personnel.

Youth’s pelted stones at police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel in Sekidafar and Safa Kadal areas of Srinagar’s old city area immediately after the Eid-ul-Fitr prayers ended here in the morning.

Some youths wearing masks waved the Pakistani and Islamic State (IS) flags, after which the security forces chased them away.

Police said three people, including a woman, sustained minor injuries after they were hit by tear gas used by the security forces to bring the mob under control.

Processions were taken out and stone-pelting was also reported in Sopore and Baramulla towns.

Protesters also pelted stones at Hyderpora and Barzalla in Srinagar city, in Sogam and Krakpora villages of Kupwara district, in Bogam village of Kulgam district and in Anantnag town.

The protesters kept regrouping each time the security forces dispersed them.

Around 150 protesters pelted stones at police in Lal Chowk area of Anantnag.

The situation returned to normal in all the areas in the afternoon, a police officer told IANS.

Separatist leaders Syed Ali Geelani and Yasin Malik were placed under house arrest in Srinagar on Saturday.

In order to maintain law and order, the separatist leaders were not allowed to join the congregational Eid prayers.
