SRINAGAR, India: Eight protesters were killed and more than 200 others injured in disputed Indian-administered Kashmir on Saturday after thousands defied a curfew following the death of a top rebel commander, officials said. Shiv Murari Sahai, a top police official in the region, told reporters that seven protestors were killed by government forces in “retaliatory action” and one drowned in a river as clashes intensified. More 100 protestors with bullet injuries were brought into different hospitals, including 50 in a hospital in the main city of Srinagar, two health officials said.
