Security forces deployed across Kashmir

Srinagar, (IANS) Following a separatist appeal for a protest shutdown across the Kashmir Valley, authorities on Monday made heavy deployment of security forces to avoid violence, police said.

“There will be no curfew anywhere in the valley,” S.J.M. Gilani, inspector general of police (IGP) Kashmir zone, told the media here.

Violent clashes erupted on Sunday in Fraesal village of Kulgam district where eight people — two civilians, two soldiers, four local militants — were killed during a gunfight.

Over two dozen people were injured in these clashes.

Police said two militants belonged to the Lashkar-e-Taiba and the other two to the Hizbul Mujahideen.
