Stone-pelt­ing youth clashed with the se­cu­rity forces in Su­gan vil­lage, from which hailed Al-Badr com­man­der Zeenat-ul-Is­lam, who was killed in a gun­fight with the se­cu­rity forces on Satur­day in Kul­gam district along with his as­so­ciate.The se­cu­rity forces fired in the air to dis­perse the pro­test­ers who re­sorted to vi­o­lence while march­ing to at­tend the fu­neral of the mil­i­tant com­man­der, a po­lice of­fi­cer said. Po­lice said the in­jured pro­test­ers, in­clud­ing one who suf­fered a bul­let wound, had been shifted to a Sri­na­gar hospi­tal where his con­di­tion was stated to be crit­i­cal.
