According to reports, clashes broke out in Kashmir’s south Bijbehara, Bandipora, Shopian and Kulgam.

One of the deceased was a 19-year-old who was killed on the spot after he was hit by a tear gas shell. Another stone-pelting protester reportedly died of pellet gun injuries.

 

At least 10 districts of the state are under curfew.



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.

This is the first time in 26 years that prayers were not offered at major mosques, Hazratbal Shrine and Eidgah, in Kashmir.

Smaller mosques were however open to the public.
