An 18-year-old boy has been killed in North Kashmir's Kupwara district in army firing during the protests against the killing of four persons by the armed forces in Handwara earlier this week. 

The deceased youngster, who has been identified as Arif Hussain Dar, son of Ghulam Mohi-u-din Dar, succumbed to his injuries at a government hospital after being severely injured in army firing. 

On Friday, the situation continued to remain tense across Kashmir valley in the aftermath of four civilian deaths early this week over an alleged molestation of a local girl by an army personnel in North Kashmir's Handwara area.

Curfew-like restrictions with police and CRPF manning barricades across the major towns of valley continued for the third day with reports of sporadic clashes between protesters and forces taking place in several areas.
