SRINAGAR — A Kashmiri teen who was injured in clashes with security forces last month died at a Srinagar hospital in the early hours of Wednesday, prompting authorities to reimpose restrictions in parts of the city, according to police officials.

Asrar Ahmed Khan, 18, was part of a mob holding protests in Soura on August 6, a day after the Centre announced the revocation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status and its bifurcation into two union territories, they said, reports PTI.

Authorities reimposed restrictions in Downtown Srinagar and parts of the Civil Lines area as a precautionary measure, according to the report.

Khan, a resident of Ilahibagh in Soura who was admitted to the Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS), battled his injuries for almost a month and died shortly after midnight on Wednesday, officials said.

“He did not have any bullet injuries,” a senior police official said.
