More Clashes In Kashmir, 2,000 Paramilitary Troops Sent In: 10 Updates

A strict curfew is in force in Kashmir to curb clashes following the killing of terrorist Burhan Wani.

Srinagar:  Several people were injured in clashes in Kashmir on Sunday as violence that has roiled the Valley since the killing of terrorist Burhan Wani earlier this month continued. The Centre is sending around 2,000 more paramilitary soldiers to the state.
Here are the 10 latest developments in this story:
  1. Three people were injured in firing by security forces after protesters tried to storm an Army camp in north Kashmir's Bandipora, police said. Several more have been injured in other clashes, reports said.
  2. Around 2,000 more Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were being sent to Kashmir, a government official said. About 2,800 troops of the CRPF were sent to assist the state police last week.
  3. A clampdown on printing and distribution of newspapers remained in effect a day after it was issued. The Indian Journalists Union in New Delhi protested the gag calling it an "attack" on the freedom of the press.
  4. Cellphone and internet services are also disabled in large parts of the state to prevent the spread of rumours that could provoke violence.
  5. Schools and colleges in the Valley, which were scheduled to reopen tomorrow, will now open on July 25 as the Jammu and Kashmir government today extended summer vacations by a week.
  6. Prime Minister Narendra Modi at an all-party meet on Sunday complimented all political parties for speaking in "one voice" over recent incidents in Kashmir.
  7. Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh said the government was taking various measures to restore peace in the Valley. "Only a handful of people are involved in fomenting trouble," he said.
  8. Thousands of pilgrims left for the Amarnath Yatra after suspensions imposed for the second time in less than a week in the wake of violence were revoked.
  9. A strict curfew remained in force throughout the 10 districts of Kashmir with hundreds of thousands of people trying to cope with shortages of food and other necessities.
  10. Forty-one people have died and more than 2,000 have been injured in violent protests that broke out after the killing of Burhan Wani, poster boy of Kashmir's new-age militancy, on July 8.
