Before the clashes, some youths were seen waving flags of Pakistan and ISIS outside the grand mosque. Meanwhile, in some parts of Kashmir Valley, funeral prayer in absentia was offered for Taliban leader Mullah Omar and Mumbai blasts convict Yakub Memon.

The prayers were held at Kashmir University in Srinagar, officials said. The funeral prayers were also held in Anantnag district of south Kashmir. While Omar's death was confirmed two days ago, Memon was hanged inside Nagpur jail yesterday.
