SRINAGAR (AFP) Six people, including a JKLF leader, were wounded Friday when Indian security forces opened fire on protesters who defied a rigid curfew in Occupied Kashmir, police said. Showket Bakshi, senior leader of the pro-independence Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), was among the injured, a police officer said, asking not to be named as he was not authorised to talk to the media. Security forces had to open fire in an effort to control the situation after a group of protesters defied curfew and pelted stones at paramilitary forces, the officer said. He said all of those injured, who also included Bakshis sister, were in a stable condition. The incident took place in Srinagar, the regions summer capital. Since a wave of anti-India protests began in June, 107 people have been killed by security forces, mostly when they opened fire on stone-throwing protesters. Bakshis brother, Shakeel Ahmed, told AFP that paramilitary forces broke the windows of several houses in the area without provocation. When my family and neighbours asked them the reason for the same they (security forces) opened fire at them, he said.
