According to media reports, police had to fire tear gas shell in Srinagar, where two Central Reserve Police Force jawans suffered injuries after being hit by stones outside the Eidgah after the Namaz.

But stone-throwing started as tens of thousands of people poured out of mosques in the main city of Srinagar after midday prayers. The unprecedented incidents had sent shock waves through the police force, prompting the Vaid to issue a warning: "Militants should realise they too have families".

In the wake of lynching of a senior police officer outside the Jamia Masjid here, the Jammu and Kashmir Police on Sunday issued an advisory Sunday asking all security personnel to avoid offering Eid prayers in public places and only do so at "protected places". Protesters put up posters of Hafiz Saeed, Burhan Wani and Sayeed Salahudeen in Pulwama of South Kashmir shouting slogans against the security forces. Many waved Pakistan flags.
