Teenager killed in security forces’ firing in Kashmir
A teenager was killed when security forces fired on protesters Saturday in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district, police said.
The teenager identified as Suhail Ahmad Lone, 15, was killed during violent protests in Qaimoh town.
“He was immediately shifted to hospital in Anantnag town where doctors declared him dead,” a senior police officer told IANS here.
Protests had erupted Saturday in Qaimoh town where two people had been injured in clashes with the security forces during anti-Israel protests Friday.
Violent protesters resorted to heavy stone pelting at the security forces, leading to them to opening fire to disperse the mob.
High tension gripped the south Kashmir area after news about the boy’s death spread in the area.
Senior civil and police officers have rushed to the town to maintain law and order and to find out the exact reasons for firing by the security forces.
