Kupwara , Fri, 13 Aug 2010 ANI

Kupwara (J-K), Aug 13 (ANI): One person was killed and several others were injured in firing by security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara District on Friday.


According to sources, the forces opened fire early in the morning to disperse protesters at Tergham in Kupwara.


After the incident, tension has gripped the entire area.


Meanwhile, curfew has been imposed in the area to maintain law and order.


Paramilitary and police forces have been deployed in strength to thwart any protest marches planned for the day.


Meanwhile, Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who has been under house arrest, has called for a march to Jamia Masjid in downtown Srinagar today and has announced that he would defy the restrictions.


However, Chairman of Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Shah Geelani has urged people to offer congregational Friday prayers at Tehsil headquarters as a mark of protests.


In a statement, Geelani also appealed the people to stage peaceful protests after Friday prayers till 4 pm.


A curfew was initially imposed on June 30 in parts of northern and southern Kashmir to stop demonstrations over a couple of protesters who died in police firing.


It was lifted some days later, but was again imposed as fresh violence erupted.


The valley is witnessing a surge of violence that has led the authorities to impose frequent curfew restrictions in several parts of Kashmir.


With this death, the death toll in violence touched 52 since June. (ANI)
