SRINAGAR (Agencies) - A second day of protests against Indian occupation shook Kashmir Saturday, leaving two protesters dead and over 30 hurt, police and witnesses said, ahead of more voting in state polls. Police opened fire to control crowds of stone-throwing demonstrators in Baramulla town, about 55 kilometres north of Srinagar, killing a teenage student, a police officer said. The violence came on the eve of the second round of seven-stage state elections which wind up in late December. The demonstrators hurled stones at a cavalcade of an election candidate from India's Congress party, prompting police guards to open fire, the officer said. Following the death, angry youths poured onto the streets of Baramulla chanting, "We want freedom" as they carried the body of the slain student shoulder high. Indian police opened fire after the baton charge and teargas proved ineffective, killing a second protester. "The situation in Baramulla town is tense," the officer said, requesting not to be named. Residents said thousands of paramilitary troops were trying to enforce a curfew in the town, although authorities say none has been officially declared.
