Sopore: Clashes were reported between the government forces and protesters at Sopore town in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Friday.

According to reports, soon after the congregational friday prayers at Jamia masjid, Sopore, hundreds of people assembled outside the mosque and started raising pro-freedom and anti-India slogans.

Amid pro freedom and anti India slogans, the protesters started marching towards the main chowk Sopore but were intercepted by the heavy contingent of security forces deployed in the township.   

The protesting youth pelted stones on the forces who retaliated with tear smoke shells and stunt grenades resulting into intense clashes. However, there were no reports of any injury so far.
