SRINAGAR, India — Four people were killed Tuesday as thousands of protesters ignored police warnings they would be shot on sight if they defied a round-the-clock curfew declared in Indian-controlled Kashmir in an attempt to quell weeks of deadly civil unrest against Indian rule.

More than 20 people were injured in clashes with government forces as they gathered or marched in the main city of Srinagar and two villages, a police officer said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Two protesters were killed in Srinagar where government forces fired at hundreds who hurled rocks and shouted, "Go India! Go back!" and "We want freedom." The news of those casualties brought out more demonstrators, the officer said.

Another person was killed in the firing by government forces in southern village of Frisal where thousands of protesters set a police station on fire, the officer said.

At least 15 people were wounded, six critically, in Frisal, the officer said.
