At least two people were killed and around 30 injured when fresh clashes broke out in Kashmir Valley on Tuesday despite a curfew.
According to reports, clashes broke out in Kashmir’s south Bijbehara, Bandipora, Shopian and Kulgam.
The clashes started when a group of protesters started hurling stones at security forces following Eid prayers in Bandipora.
The two deaths on Tuesday took the toll in over two-month-long unrest in the Valley to 78.
Curfew in the districts meant that many people were not allowed to offer prayers on Eid. Even Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and former CM Omar Abdullah were not able to offer Eid prayers.
Smaller mosques were however open to the public.
