Web Desk: Indian security forces imposed a curfew across held Kashmir, which has entered into a fifth consecutive day on Tuesday.

During curfew so far, four innocent Kashmirs have been martyred as Indian forces continued to clamp down in the occupied valley. The killings by Indian troops took place in Pinglena area of the district during a so-called search operation.

Moreover, Indian authorities have withdrawn security of six separatist leaders, including Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Feb 17 in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack.

Meanwhile, at least 6,000 Kashmiri Muslims have taken refuge in mosques across the occupied valley fearing attacks by Hindu mobs.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Abdul Majid, a member of Makkah Masjid Committee Bathindi, said around 2,500 to 3,000 people are seeking shelter in his mosque.
