Protestors burnt a police vehicle near the Eidgah here on Wednesday as violence erupted in various parts of Kashmir Valley after the Eid prayers.

The mob reportedly raising anti-India slogans set ablaze a police vehicle and started pelting stones on the security personnel deployed in the area soon after the Eid prayers today.

The police personnel had to later open fire in the air to disperse the mob.

No casualties were, however, reported in the incident.

Kashmir Valley has witnessed massive demonstrations in the last three months and at least hundred stone-pelting protestors have been killed in firing by the security forces. (ANI)
