At least two people were killed in Kashmir's Bandipora and Shopian regions after fresh clashes erupted in those regions on Tuesday. Curfew was imposed in all 10 districts of Kashmir on Tuesday.
A 19-year-old boy, Mustafa Ahmed Mir, died in Bandipora after he was hit by a tear gas shell during clashes with security forces, while another youth Shahid Ahmad Shah died in Shopian after being hit in the hand and heart by pellet guns.
Clashes also erupted in Bijbehara, Batamaloo, Pattan and Kulgam. Three people were injured in Shopian, eight in Kulgam, four in Pattan.
Strict curfew was imposed in Kashmir after fresh clashes with security personnel stopping residents from stepping out to offer prayers on Eid al-Adha. In solidarity with the people, Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah have not offered their prayers either, the Indian Express reported.
The region most affected by the curfew is Srinagar with people being stopped from visiting mosques on Eid for the first time. Major mosques in the city have been shut. Residents will reportedly be offering namaz at smaller mosques.
The city went under lockdown after separatists called for a march towards the United Nation's office. On Tuesday, the UN General Assembly will be hosting the opening ceremony of the 71st session in New York.
Apart from security forces on ground, the military has eyes in the sky with helicopters and drones. Internet and mobile services, except BSNL, were shutdown for 72-hours.
