SRINAGAR (AFP) - Protesters clashed with police Saturday as a strike over the alleged rape and murder of two young Muslim women paralysed Occupied Kashmir for a sixth day. The strike closed shops, schools, banks and offices in the summer capital Srinagar and other towns in the Muslim-majority Kashmir valley, police and witnesses said. Police fired teargas and swung batons to disperse hundreds of protesters in Srinagar, who retaliated by hurling stones and bricks. Ten protesters received minor injuries, a police officer said, adding riot police were keeping a tight vigil over protesters elsewhere. Police said they were investigating the deaths of the 17-year-old woman and her pregnant 22-year-old sister-in-law, whose bodies were found in a shallow stream last Saturday. A judicial probe has been ordered by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, but it has failed to cool tempers. Kashmirs political leadership Saturday remained under house arrest, which was imposed a week earlier. Police and paramilitary forces have also sealed with barbed wire some neighbourhoods in Srinagar and in southern Shopian town, where the two womens deaths were reported. Earlier Saturday, the main Opposition Peoples Democratic Party held a protest march in Srinagar. Its leader, Mehbooba Mufti, called for the repeal of tough security laws that have given the security forces sweeping powers. Until the atrocities end and the forces return to the barracks, people of Kashmir cannot lead a normal life, she said.
