SRINAGAR (Agencies) - Thousands of Indian police and paramilitary forces imposed tight security Saturday on Kashmir's summer capital to prevent protests over the death of a young man in a police shooting. Troops sealed off neighbourhoods and patrolled the deserted streets of Srinagar, urban hub of a nearly two-decade-old revolt against New Delhi's rule of the Muslim-majority region. "We've imposed security restrictions to prevent violent protests," Indian police officer Pervez Ahmed said as troops with rifles slung over their shoulders built barricades and stopped residents leaving their homes. The move came a day after a 22-year-old man was killed and dozens of people hurt when police fired bullets and tear gas to disperse fresh anti-India demonstrations in Srinagar, summer capital of the region. The stone-throwing protesters were demanding the release of Kashmiri leaders jailed last year for leading some of the biggest pro-freedom demonstrations in the region since the start of an anti-India insurgency in 1989. Fifty protesters were killed during those demonstrations. The head of the moderate wing of All Parties Hurriyat Alliance accused troops of "a reign of terror". "The troopers have been unleashing a reign of terror on the Kashmiris and no one seems to be bothered," Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said. The fighting has left more than 47,000 people dead, according to official figures, and thousands more according to Kashmiri leaders.
