Two people were killed and several others injured Tuesday in India- controlled Kashmir in the unrelenting violence for the fifth straight day, officials said.

The deaths took place in Srinagar city, the summer capital of India-controlled Kashmir, after police opened fire to quell protest demonstrations.

Reports said hundreds of demonstrators shouting slogans "We want freedom, blood for blood! and go India go back!" and tried to defy curfew restrictions in Srinagar city.

However, police and India's paramilitary Central reserve Police Force (CRPF) fired in to break the protests killing two and injuring others.

"Two people were killed today in the firing. Though they were brought to hospital but they had already succumbed to the firearm injuries," said an official.

The slain persons have been identified as 17-year-old Anees Khurshid and 22-year-old Mehrajudin Lone.
