J and K: Curfew imposed in 10 districts
Srinagar, Mar 6 : Curfew has been imposed in 10 districts in Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday following the killing of a youth allegedly by the Indian Army in Baramulla district on Tuesday.
The state police have filed a First Information Report (FIR) against the Army and named a Colonel in it.
The Army, however, denied the accusations.
The Army's northern command said in a statement: "Army reiterates that Tariq Ahmad's death could not have been caused due to the firing by the Army personnel as extreme caution was exercised by them and the fire was deliberately aimed in the air."
A youth named Tahir Ahmed Sofi was allegedly killed in firing by the Army in North Kashmir's Baramulla town while protesting against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and the suicide of a youth in Pulwama district of the state.
Internet services have reportedly been suspended across the Valley to prevent rumours and more tension.
According to reports, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah broke down in the state legislative assembly last evening when People's Democratic Party (PDP) members walked out of the House in protest over the killing of the youth.
