Srinagar, Nov 9 (IBNS): Violent protests broke out in the old city of Srinagar on Monday as a group of youths bombarded stones on security forces to show their anger over the killing of an engineering student in a CRPF firing at Zainakote on Sunday evening.
A large number of youths came out on streets in old Srinagar's Nowhatta, Gojwara, Rajouri Kadal and Kawadara areas early in the morning and blocked roads.
They also pelted stones on security forces, police said.
Security forces lobbed tear smoke shells to disperse the stone pelting protesters.
