SRINAGAR: Fresh clashes between irate crowds and security forces erupted at about two dozen places across curfew-bound Kashmir on Friday, leaving scores injured.

Yet the intensity of protests and clashes was comparatively low given the widespread blood-spattered disturbances witnessed on all Fridays during past over one month.

 

Meanwhile, a delegation of the Jammu and Kashmir’s opposition mainstream parties will meet President, Pranab Mukherjee, at the Rashtrapati Bhavan at 1.30 pm on Saturday to apprise him of the prevailing situation in the Valley. The 20-member delegation will be led by former CM and NC working chief, Omar Abdullah.
