18th of Aug, 2019

One man has reportedly died from a tear gas and chilly gas inhalation. This led to clashes between youth and Security Forces in which dozens of youth got injured. Although the officials said that around 8 youth have been injured, the number has crossed 50 if locals are to be believed.

Government on Sunday reimposed restrictions on the movement in Srinagar after overnight clashes that left dozens injured and one dead, two Senior officials said.

Following an easing on Curbs on movement on Saturday morning, Kashmir was hit by a series of protests against the abrogation of Article 370.

It is pertinent to mention that while the authorities claim to have restored landlines throughout the valley, only 17-18 lines have been activated.
