This was followed by two more grenade explosions - one at Maisuma in central Srinagar, injuring one CRPF jawan and a civilian, and the other near the police control room.

This is the second incident of such kind in the valley over last one month. After both his parents died in 2010, Bhat and his two sisters had been living with their aunt in Srinagar's Dalgate. Kaiser, who was said to be "very critical" and "on life support", passed away around midnight.

"He (the slain youth) was helping his uncle in his business of shawls".

Former state chief minister Omar Abdullah took to Twitter to condemn the incident. They said the Pakistani shelling was "indiscriminate and unprovoked" and was not just targeting paramilitary outposts but also villages. Is this your new SOP @MehboobaMufti sahiba? "Ceasefire means no guns, so use jeeps?" he tweeted along with a picture of youth crushed under CRPF vehicle. "These killing continue either by bullets, pellets or lately by crushing them under their vehicles", the trio said.

Dozens of people were injured when Indian troops and police personnel used brute force on the funeral of a martyred youth in Srinagar, occupied Kashmir on Saturday. "The protesters were trying to lynch people inside the vehicle and the driver was trying to get out of the situation", he said. "Investigation in the instant matter is going on", the statement said.

The CRPF vehicle, according to eyewitnesses, in order to move out of the demonstration sped on, knocking down two boys Younis Ahmed and Qaiser Butt.

A local news agency quoted a police spokesperson saying that two FIRs had been registered in the case.

A 21-year-old Kashmiri civilian who sustained injuries on Friday after being run over by a speedy CRPF vehicle died on Saturday.

He said the criticism of security forces who risk their lives protecting the country was "unfortunate". When they reached the main chowk they pelted stones on the security force posse.

But Hurriyat leaders slammed the forces over the incident.

Jammu and Kashmir Police has registered a case of rash-driving against the CRPF for moving down a youth during protests in Nowhatta area of downtown Srinagar on Friday.
