More than thirty people were injured in fresh clashes in southern Shopian where twelve militants had been gunned down by security forces in two separate encounters on Sunday.

According to hospital officials, numerous injured were hit by shotgun pellets in the eyes, causing widespread anger across Kashmir.

Pakistan on Sunday had condemned the brutal and indiscriminate use of force by the Indian forces.
