Clashes erupted between groups of youth and security forces in Sugan village of south Kashmir's Shopian district amid multiple funeral prayers for Al-Badr commander Zeenat-ul-Islam who was killed in an encounter in Saturday, a police official said.
Sugan is Islam's native village.
Clashes erupted soon after the forces tried to chase away the people from assembling in the village, the official said.
He said at least a dozen persons were injured in the forces' action.
A woman also suffered injuries when she was allegedly hit by a security forces' vehicle during the clashes, the official said, adding she has been hospitalised.
"Reports of aerial firing at Sugan Shopian to stop the crowd from participating in the funeral prayers of a local militant , are very unfortunate and disturbing . Such interference in the religious affairs is undesirable and may backfire leading to further anger and alienation," Mehbooba wrote on Twitter. PTI SSB
