Muslim Kashmiris protested against the move to donate land to a Hindu trust [AFP]
Police in Indian-administered Kashmir have clashed with about 1,000 separatist protesters in the summer capital, Srinagar, police say.

The unrest was triggered by a move by Kashmir's government to donate 100 acres of land to the Hindu Amarnath shrine trust.

The decision was later reversed following protests by Kashmiris who feared the move would turn the Muslim majority state into a Hindu one. 

Shots were fired and people were taken to hospital, but the number of casualties is unclear.

People hoisted black flags in many parts of Srinagar on India's independence day.
