jammu: Violence has started again in South Kashmir’s Anantnag, where people protesting against the mob killing of a truck driver have clashed with the police. At least four protesters have been injured as police used pellet guns and tear gas shells to disperse the mob.

They protest to get quick action in the Udhampur attack. Unrest has started in the valley since. Clashes took pace in Anantnag on Sunday and Monday, when Zahid’s funeral took place. Yesterday a strike was observed across the Valley to protest against Zahid’s death. Even today, a shutdown is being observed in many parts of the district.

Due to clashes Srinagar-Jammu national highway was closed once again, and hundreds of stranded trucks and buses were cleared by police during the night. Sources say Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Office is monitoring the situation in Kashmir. Nine men, all locals, have been arrested for the attack on Zahid.
