More than 350 people have been wounded in the violence since Saturday. Meanwhile, normal life continued to remain paralysed for the third consecutive day on Monday as protests, mainly by the youth, have been going on in different areas of the Valley. The youth have been taking to streets and engaging police and paramilitary jawans in clashes in the capital city and other areas. These demonstrations were triggered following the death of Wani in South Kashmir on Friday evening. There are reports of clashes under way in various parts of Kashmir on Monday.
