Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has convened a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) to discuss the situation in Kashmir in the wake of fresh violence in the valley which has claimed the lives of seven persons in the last three days.

The CCS will meet later in the day, official sources said on Sunday.

The number of people  who have lost their lives in violence since Friday has gone up to seven after one person was killed in clashes between protestors and security forces which opened fire in Pampore area in the outskirts of the city early in the day.

Curfew remained clamped in violence-hit Kashmir Valley as security forces maintained a close vigil on the situation, which continued to be tense.

Curfew was imposed in nine districts of the Valley --Anantnag, Srinagar, Baramulla, Kulgam, Budgam, Bandipora, Gnaderbal, Shopian and Pulwama -- while prohibitory orders are in place in Kupwara district.
