Minutes after the Friday prayers on 15 April, protests broke out in Natsuna village of north Kashmir's Kupwara district.
Four people were injured as police opened fire on the crowd, who were ironically protesting the deaths of four civilians in a police firing in Handwara earlier in the week. Of them, one reportedly succumbed to his injuries.
Three of the injured have been rushed to Srinagar for medical aid.
Further details are awaited.
