Hundreds of people in Indian-administered Kashmir have staged protests after a man was said to be killed by security forces who were also accused of placing his grandson on top of his body to take photographs.

The family of the slain civilian alleged that Khan was dragged from his car and shot dead by paramilitary troopers.

Khan's brother, Nazir Ahmad, also rubbished the police claims and blamed security forces for the death.

The family members also accused the security forces of putting the child on the deceased civilian's body for taking pictures.

Since January, at least 229 people have been killed during more than 100 military operations across Indian-administered Kashmir, including 32 civilians, 54 government forces and 143 rebels, according to the Coalition of Civil Society, a rights group.
