Government troops fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse Muslim protesters throwing rocks and chanting anti-India slogans in Kashmir's main city on Saturday. Several people were injured in the clash, police said. Hundreds of angry protesters spilled onto the streets in Srinagar's Nowhatta district to demand an end to Indian rule in the disputed Himalayan region, said Prabhakar Tripathi, a spokesman for the paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force. Some protesters threw rocks at troops who were trying to disperse the rowdy crowd, and the forces retaliated with tear gas and rubber bullets, Tripathi said.
