Srinagar: Condemning the alleged killing
of a youth in a fresh incident of firing, separatist leaders
today gave a call for Kashmir bandh to protest against the
"systematic killing of youths" in the state.

Chairman of both factions of Hurriyat Conference,
headed by Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, gave
separate calls for Kashmir bandh tomorrow to protest against
the "systematic killing of youths".

Violence broke out today as an agitated mob tried to
set on fire a mobile bunker of CRPF in Noorbagh locality,
prompting the paramilitary force personnel to open fire,
resulting in the death of Javid Ahmad Malla and injuries to
four others.

Meanwhile, the state unit of CPI-M today urged the
government to maintain restraint while dealing with peaceful
demonstrators.

"I urge upon the administration to maintain restraint
while dealing with peaceful demonstrators and appeal the
people to hold peaceful demonstrations and desist from violent
measures while giving vent to their grievances," CPI-M state
secretary, M Y Tarigami said.

The leader also said that "whosoever involved in these
killings must be brought to book", while condemning the recent
incidents in the state.

Referring to the alleged killing of Tufail Ahmad
Mattoo on June 11 and Mohammad Rafiq Bangroo who succumbed to
his injuries last night, Tarigami said the claims of "zero
tolerance and prompt investigations into these unfortunate
happenings have proved shallow".
