Another Youth Killed In Kashmir19 July 2010
Srinagar: A fresh wave of protests was sparked off in the north Kashmir town of Baramulla on Monday after security forces shot dead another youth. This is the 16th such killing since June 11. Fayaz Ahmad Khanday was killed when security forces opened fire at a funeral procession of another boy who was drowned when they chased a stone-pelting mob on Saturday. Police sources said the body was fished out on Monday. When the funeral procession reached near the district commissioner’s office, the mourners turned violent, prompting the security forces to open fire. Of the 13 people injured in the incident, one died. “Fayaz Ahmad Khanday received a bullet in his chest and was declared dead. Another, critically injured, youth was shifted to hospital in Srinagar,” MS Nanda, medical superintendent of District Hospital, Baramulla, said.
