Srinagar: The Army on Sunday carried out a flag march in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir where about 170 people were injured in clashes.
Another 30-35 people sustained injuries in similar incidents elsewhere in the Valley, sources said. Pulwama’s Karimabad area erupted at 6.30 am after Army’s Rashtriya Rifles along with J&K police and CRPF arrived in the area, reportedly to effect arrests.
Karimabad has during the 64-day-old unrest in the Valley witnessed a series of pro-freedom protests, rallies and clashes. At one such rally held on July 31 and which was attended by more than 50,000 people, the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba’s topmost commander Abu Dojana had also appeared to pay homage to slain militants.
