The Indian Army used bullets, teargas, and pellets and engaged in shelling on the protesters as they took to the streets of various towns, including Srinagar, Pulwama, and Baramulla, despite the deployment of additional troops in Occupied Kashmir, according to media reports.

The demonstrations were against New Delhi’s Monday move to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution that gave special rights to the Muslim-majority state.

The latest casualties come as curfew and a communication blackout in the disputed Himalayan region continues, with no means to contact the outside world and press suppressed as well.
