2019-08-09 | Analysis: Indian troops fire tear gas as mass protests erupt in Srinagar

Security forces have opened fire on demonstrators as thousands of people took to the streets of Srinagar to protest against India's stripping of the region's autonomy, local sources have told Al Jazeera.
The protests in the main city of Indian-administered Kashmir took place after Friday prayers, Al Jazeera's Priyanka Gupta said, reporting from the Indian capital, New Delhi.
"Despite the unprecedented security lockdown, thousands of people demonstrated in Srinagar and were met with live fire, tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets," she said, citing sources in the city.
The protest was the "largest of its kind" since the Indian government's move on Monday.

Al Jazeera's Priyanka Gupta reports live from New Delhi.
