Jammu & Kashmir: Sopur protests killings

Sopur, Jammu & Kashmir, India, (Greater Kashmir News Network):

Massive protests rocked this north Kashmir town on Monday after the news about the death of two persons in police firing in Varmul spread in the area.

Scores of youth took to the roads and staged demonstrations. They blocked Sopur-Kupwara road due to which traffic came to a standstill.

The protesters later attempted to attack a police station following which police and CRPF troopers resorted to cane charge and fired tear smoke canisters to disperse them.

While the protests were going on in the area, locals alleged that the CRPF troopers barged into the residential houses in Chankhan and Batapora localities. “Troopers broke the window panes of the houses and beat up many pedestrians,” they added.
