Srinagar: On a day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting Jammu and Kashmir, flags of terror group ISIS, Pakistan and Lashkar-e-Toiba were waved after the Juma-tul-Wida namaz in Nohwatta area on Friday.

The flags were raised by some masked youths in Nohatta area.

The incident happened when clashes broke out between some people and police.

The protesters attacked the policemen with stones, who in turn resorted to tear gas firing to disperse the mob.

The situation was reported to be normal when last reports came in.

There have been more than a dozen incidents of ISIS flag being raised in Kashmir valley in recent months.

ISIS is a banned organisation in the country. The group has taken over a large part of Iraq and Syria and is known for its brutality towards hostages.

While the Opposition criticised the Centre for keeping mum over the issue the ruling BJP assured that the Jammu and Kashmir Government would take all the necessary actions against any anti-Indian activity after Pakistani and ISIS flags surfaced once again in the valley.

"Anybody raising any anti-India activity, they will be dealt as per the law and the state government will take necessary action which is required to be taken," BJP leader Siddharth Nath Singh told ANI.
