SRINAGAR: The shut down call by the separatists following the alleged molestation of a minor girl by an Indian Army personnel in Handwara, Jammu and Kashmir entered its fourth day today in parts of Srinagar, as the area witnessed a tensed calm with the security still beefed up and restrictions still imposed.

In Tral in south Kashmir, villagers hurled stones at a CRPF camp and this led to clashes.

Reports said at least, three protesters were injured in fresh clashes on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the girl has reportedly denied that she was molested by an Army man and accused two local youths of hatching a conspiracy.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti who chaired her first security review meeting yesterday to take stock of the situation ordered that no harm must be done to civilians.

Mufti had earlier said that she had spoken to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, who assured her that the guilty in the incident which left five civilians dead, would not be spared.
