Srinagar, September 15 (Only Kashmir): In occupied Kashmir, four students were martyred and several others injured, today, when Indian police personnel opened fire at peaceful protesters at Mendhar in Poonch.

Veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement in Srinagar denounced the killing of the students by the police. Many people were injured in clashes between protesters and Indian police in Chadoora and Nowgam areas. The forces went on rampage at Aanchar in Srinagar, beating up youth and raiding the houses.
