Clashes erupted in parts of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district, including Tekkipora - native village of slain Hizb ul Mujahideen commander Mannan Wani - after congregational Friday prayers.

Reports said that youth took to streets in Sogam, Tekkipora, Kupwara main market and Regipora areas of the district to protest the killing of Wani and his aide in a gunfight yesterday.

They said that the forces deployed in strength in the area fired tear gas to foil the protests.

Meanwhile, a complete shutdown is being observed in the district to pay homage to Wani.

Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik has called for a shutdown today.
