Officials say that's nonsense, and that the vehicle was surrounded by a crowd of angry young men, some of whom fell beneath the jeep-like auto when they tried to pull the soldiers out and lynch them.

Two youths were critically injured after they were run over by the CRPF vehicle during clashes between protestors and government forces in Nowhatta in Srinagar on Friday.

Protesters regularly spill into the streets of Srinagar after Friday prayer services, demanding an end to New Delhi's rule over Indian-controlled Kashmir.

A Kashmiri man shouts for help as a paramilitary vehicle runs over him during a protest in Srinagar.

The Kashmiris were staging a demonstration against the desecration of the grand mosque by the Indian police when the tragic incident happened, riling the locals of the restive region.

However, CRPF spokesman Sanjay Sharma termed the case against the driver "baseless": "There was no scope for the vehicle to even crawl". Two persons including a trooper of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and a civilian were injured in a grenade attack in Budhshah Chowk when militants hurled a grenade at a CRPF vehicle on Saturday evening.

Doctors at the Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, where he was taken, said Bhat died of "lung contusion" late Friday evening. He along with his sisters was living with his aunt in Dalgate area of Srinagar for the past four years as both his parents had died. One woman was also among the injured.

"Ceasefire means no guns so use jeeps", he tweeted, asking Mufti, "if this was the standard operating procedure of dealing with protesters".

One of the victims remains in a critical condition. The puppet authorities placed Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house arrest, while Syed Ali Gilani is already under house detention for the past more than eight years. There were earlier reports of a fourth blast too but police later said it was probably a tyre burst.

He said the criticism of security forces who risk their lives protecting the country was "unfortunate".

As they marched towards Eidgah grounds some distance away, security forces tried to stop the procession leading to clashes.

Police said the CRPF driver had been charged with risky driving.
