Agitated mob torches house of Dy SP in Kargil

Srinagar:Violence over the alleged desecration of the Quran spread to Kargil on Friday where an agitated mob set ablaze the house of a senior police official forcing authorities to clamp curfew and call the Army.
A group of youth, agitated over the government’s "inaction" in the case, set ablaze the house of Deputy Superintendent of Police Sonam, and unsuccessfully tried to torch the district police-line in Kargil as well, Defence spokesman Lt Col VK Batra said. In the neighbouring town of Leh, curfew remained in force for the second day in succession after clashes between Muslims and Buddhists over the alleged desecration of the Quran in the Bodh Kharboo area of Kargil district.
