The death toll following the Kashmir unrest, which has been prolonged for three months now, has increased to 91 as yet another teenager succumbed to his injuries after a clash which took place on 7 October.

Junaid Ahmad Bhat, a 13-year old boy who was injured in a clash with forces last night in Eidgah area of downtown Srinagar, died at Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) in Soura on 8 October.

Strict restrictions have been imposed in some parts of Srinagar after the death of Bhat in areas falling under Maharaj Gunj, Nowhatta, Rainawari, Safa Kadal, Khanyar police stations of the old city and Maisuma and Kralkhud police stations in uptown.

Meanwhile, the shutdown continued for the 92nd day, crippling the life of local residents.

The Kashmir valley is also on high alert after India carried out surgical strikes on terror launch pads on 29 September across the Line of Control (LoC).

Villages on the bordering areas are being evacuated and locals are being moved to safer locations.

The valley has been boiling after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8.
