NEW DELHI (Agencies) Six people, including a nine-year-old boy, were killed in Indian-occupied Kashmir on Monday, amid renewed clashes between anti-India protesters and security forces, police and eyewitnesses said. Four protesters were shot dead by security forces in incidents across the Muslim-majority Kashmir valley, a police officer, who declined to be named, told AFP. A fifth was killed in a stampede triggered by one of the shooting incidents, while eyewitnesses said a nine-year-old boy died after being beaten by paramilitary forces in the Kashmirs summer capital, Srinagar. Police said they were investigating the circumstances of the boys death which brought angry crowds onto the streets of Srinagar, chanting: We want freedom and Blood for blood. A police statement said the four shooting deaths had been caused when security forces opened fire on crowds of protesters after failing to disperse them with baton charges and teargas. More than 70 people, including 39 policemen, were injured in the clashes, the statement said. The death toll in the past two months now stands at 38, many of them killed in police firing. The chief minister of Kashmir flew to the capital on Monday calling for urgent reinforcements to end the worst anti-government violence in two years in which more than 30 people have died. IHK Chief Minister Omar Abdullah met Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram in New Delhi. Tragically, we have locked ourselves into a cycle of violence where protests lead to death leading to further protests, leading to further casualties, he told a news conference. This cycle of violence must end. When people take it upon themselves to take the law into their hands there are consequences and sometimes these consequences are tragic, Abdullah said, appealing for an end to the unrest. Abdullah said he needed more paramilitary and rapid action forces to quell the protests and ensure a curfew, defied by thousands on Monday, was enforced.
