Amid a complete shutdown, clashes broke out in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Monday against the killing of an alleged local militant in north Kashmir’s Tanghdar sector on May 25.
Sheeraz Ahmad Sheikh, a resident of Lajoora Pulwama , is believed to be one among the five militants killed in Tangdhar on May 25.
His family claimed that they have identified Sheikh as the photographs of the slain militants surfaced on the social media.
A police official said that scores of youth since Monday morning took to streets and pelted forces with stones deployed in the area.
“The forces retaliated with tear-gas shelling,” he said.
