SRINAGAR (Agencies) - Fresh violence hit Occupied Kashmir on Wednesday as thousands of people shouting anti-India slogans took to the streets to bury victims of two days of deadly protests. Thousands chanting 'Indian troops go home' and 'we will spill blood for blood' poured onto the streets of Srinagar to join funeral processions for two persons who died of wounds in hospital early Wednesday. The main city in the Valley also saw more large demonstrations and gunfire, although Indian security forces eased a total curfew for a few hours so residents could stock up on food and other supplies. Officials said the toll from protests, which were met with police and army gunfire, stood at 21 dead - all of them Muslims - and at least 500 injured. There was less violence across Kashmir Wednesday than during the two previous days, the region's police chief Kuldeep Khuda told reporters. Twelve people were hurt, three critically, in Pulwana district, south of Srinagar, when police opened fire on stone-hurling demonstrators. Eight others were wounded, one critically, when police fired at stone-throwing protesters in Srinagar, doctors said, while demonstrators torched state buildings and vehicles. Demonstrators also destroyed security bunkers, beat up off-duty policemen and set ablaze two police motorcycles. Two veteran separatist leaders, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Syed Ali Geelani, have called for 'non-violent protest demonstrations' to continue. "We call upon the nation to observe three days of mourning and hold peaceful demonstrations," Farooq said. He also called on Kashmiris to observe August 15, India's Independence Day, as a 'black day'.
