- ℹ️ Description
Protests in Indian Kashmir's main city of Srinagar turned violent on Aug. 30, as demonstrators clashed with security personnel as tensions escalated in the Himalayan region, which was stripped of its autonomy earlier in August.
Hundreds of locals staged a protest march after Aug. 30 afternoon prayers, against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's decision to withdraw autonomy for Jammu and Kashmir on Aug. 5.
Security forces were seen using tear gas to disperse the angry demonstrators.
Thousands of paramilitary police were deployed in the streets of Srinagar to quell protests stemming from India's move to revoke a special status for the territory.
