Reports said central reserve police force (CRPF) troopers torched over two dozen motorcycles and other vehicles that participated in the protest rally.

Protest rallies and marches also took place at Koil, Bijbehara and some other places in south Kashmir where the security forces did not intervene.

Protesters marched with the body of a youth working as an ATM guard in Srinagar.

The guard had died under mysterious circumstances, but the autopsy report stated that he was shot with a pellet gun from point blank range.

Authorities decided to impose curfew and restrictions under section 144 CrPc (Criminal Procedure Code) in south Kashmir districts of Shopian, Kulgam, Pulwama, Anantnag and parts of Srinagar city.

Fifty-two people - 50 civilians and two policemen - were killed in the present unrest in the Valley following the killing of Hizbul commander, Burhan Wani in a gunfight on 8 July.
