Protests have rocked Kashmir after back-to-back killings of teachers at a school and a prominent pharmacist from the Kashmiri Pandit community. While residents took to streets, several leaders expressed condolences. Amid reactions of shock, videos of cremation surfaced on social media. A heart-wrenching video showed a teacher from Bihar being cremated in Srinagar as his family couldn’t afford to bring the body to their hometown.


The last rites of the slain principal of a government school in Eidgah locality of the city were performed on Friday amidst a protest by members of the Sikh community.
