SRINAGAR: Violence raged in parts of the Kashmir Valley on Sunday after a victim of the October 9 fire-bomb attack on a truck in Udhampur died in Delhi and separatists and others called for a bandh on Monday, police said.

Zahid Rasool Bhat, who was being treated for serious burn injuries in Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital, died early on Sunday, a police officer said.

As news of the death in Delhi spread on Sunday, mobs took to the streets in the southern district of Anantnag in the Kashmir valley and blocked the Jammu-Srinagar highway by burning tyres.
