For over two months the Kashmir valley has simmered with discontent against the government as youth have thronged the streets demanding azaadi.

Some human images from the conflict zone.

A Kashmiri man pleads before a Rapid Action Force trooper to release his son detained for being a suspected stone-thrower during a protest in Srinagar on August 16.

The two-month-old protests, the angriest since a separatist revolt against New Delhi broke out in Kashmir in 1989, have so far killed 62 people and been blamed on the security forces.

The latest violence started with the death of a teenage student hit by a tear gas shell in early June.
