In a fresh incident of violence, three people were injured in Paddar, 60 km from Kishtwar town, after two communities clashed early Saturday morning.

Only the day before, two people had died and several others were injured in a similar incident, following which curfew was imposed in the entire district.

"Three people were injured. A helicopter was sent to airlift them but it couldn't land because of the bad weather. They have been brought to district hospital," said divisional commissioner Jammu Shantmanu.
