For obvious reason, media houses across the world are highlighting the “pain” of a section of the Kashmiri population following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani.

The violence also left many security force personnel injured too. This report says that the protestors chased a J&K policeman, thrashed him badly and blinded him.
According to this report the injured cop named Shafaqat Ahmed was a member of the SSP-Srinagar’s security team. The protestors first torched his vehicle and then chased him.
He is being treated in the Army hospital along with many other security force personnel who were injured during the protests.

The pellet gun did leave many protestors with eye injuries but the gun is the last resort in a non-lethal counter by the security forces.

A mob reportedly looted around 70 police weapons from a police station in Damhal Hanji Pora in Kulgam. No ‘expert’ or ‘azadi sympathsier’ is pointing to the gravity of this loot.
While the security forces are desperately trying to control the situation, the Separatists are not letting normalcy return to the Valley. By calling for extension of shutdown, the Separatists are aggravating the already tense situation.
Mobs attacked the security personnel even when the latter was carrying out relief missions.
