Three civilians were injured when Army opened fire on protesters at Saderkote village in Bandipore on Sunday. Police said the protesters tried to storm a security camp.

“Three people have been injured in the incident,” Deputy Commissioner Bandipore Sajad Hussain Ganai told The Indian Express. “As of now, no death has been reported”.

Curfew remained in force for the tenth consecutive day while normal life remained paralysed in the wake of deadly clashes that have rocked the Valley following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani nine days ago leaving several dead and over 3,160 injured.

Two persons were also injured in security forces action when a mob pelted stones in Eidgah area of the city. The fresh violence came even as the situation in curfew-bound Kashmir was by and large peaceful during the day.

After restricting mobile telephone services, authorities have now snapped the landline connections to curb the violent protests.

“All 10 districts of Kashmir Valley continue to remain under curfew today as a precautionary measure for maintaining law and order,” a police official said.

He said the decision to continue the curfew was taken to maintain law and order as one person was killed in fresh violence in Kupwara district on Saturday.

Police and paramilitary personnel were deployed in strength across the Valley for strict implementation of the prohibitory orders, the official said.
