Intense clashes erupted after Zakir Musa and his aide were reportedly trapped in a residential house at Noorpora, his native village in Tral on Friday evening.

He had formerly led the Hizbul Mujahideen. The Indian armed forces had to reportedly resort to teargas shelling to disperse the protesters because they started pelting stones on the army. He had recently exited HM following a controversy over his statement that he was not confining his fight for Kashmir cause but for the Caliphate.
