Hundreds of protesters clashed with government forces in Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir territory) during a spontaneous demonstration on Wednesday, October 14, after an army vehicle hit a civilian scooter near the Batwara area, killing one person and injuring another. Demonstrators reportedly threw stones, prompting government forces to disperse the crowd.
Further protests over the incident are likely in the coming days, and a heightened security presence is to be expected in the areas.
Those in the affected area are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
