Clashes rock Palhalan

Baramulla: Clashes broke out Tuesday in Palhalan town of this north Kashmir district when groups of youth attacked police vehicles with stones.
Reports said groups of youth appeared at Main Chowk Palhalan along the Srinagar-Baramulla highway and pelted stones at police vehicles presuming that the cops were coming to the area to arrest youth involved in protests. The cops lobbed teargas canisters towards the stone pelting youth. This led to fierce clashes in the area.
The clashes continued for some time. However, no one was reported to have suffered injury in the clashes.
As the day progressed, the traders resumed their business, while transport also plied normally on the highway.
