Srinagar, August 06 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, clashes between the youth and Indian armed forces took place during anti-India protest demonstrations in Srinagar on Shab-e-Qadr (Monday night).
Hundreds of youth staged pro-freedom and anti-India demonstrations at Nowhatta and Khanyar areas of the city on the night.
