Zionist New Delhi forces have used live ammunition to disperse hundreds of the demonstrators protesting against the killing of a suspected anti-India fighter in Indian-administered Kashmir.

On Friday, hundreds of demonstrators poured onto the streets of Kakpora village, located 35 kilometers (20 miles) south of Srinagar, the region’s main city, to denounce the shooting death of the man by Indian troops in a recent encounter.

Violence erupted when protesters threw rocks at police forces, who were hurling teargas canisters and firing live rounds to disperse the crowd.

Indian police sources said at least two people have suffered serious bullet wounds in the violence.

Anti-India protests resumed after government forces handed over the body of Talib Shah, an anti-India fighter, to his relatives. Shah was later buried in the village graveyard.

Indian sources say Shah was killed during a shootout with Indian troops in the troubled region on Thursday.

Indian troops are in constant clashes with the armed groups seeking independence in the area.

Indian authorities have deployed large contingents of police and paramilitary troops to most parts of Srinagar and several other major towns to prevent street demonstrations.

Kashmir lies at the heart of more than 67 years of hostility between India and Pakistan. Both neighbors claim the region in full but have partial control over it.

The neighbors agreed on a ceasefire in 2003, and launched a peace process the following year. Since then, there have been sporadic clashes, with both sides accusing the other of violating the ceasefire.
