Muharram Procession turns Violent in Kashmir, J&K

Jammu and Kashmir Police on Wednesday used force on Shia mourners to prevent them from taking out a Muharram procession in “violation of prohibitory orders in force in the summer capital city.”

Carrying religious banners and shouting pro-Islam slogans, the mourners tried to march towards the city centre were administration had imposed restrictions.

An eye witness said scores of mourners took out a march from Dalgate area of Srinagar and proceeded towards the city center. However, when the procession reached Dalgate Chowk police intercepted the mourners and asked to them to retreat.

As the mourners offered stiff resistance and tried to break the cordon, police resorted to baton charge and fired numerous tear gas shells to disperse them.

However, a large number of mourners were able to proceed towards Lal Chowk where police swung into action and again fired tear gas shells to disperse them.

Several mourners broke the police cordon near MA Road also and proceeded towards Shaheed Gunj.
