70 held in Kashmir protests.
Police used batons and water cannons to repel government employees shouting "roll back fuel prices" as they tried to march to the office of Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad in Srinagar.
Twenty protesters were injured while 70 others were detained.
Unhappiness over the fuel price rise announced last week by the ruling Congress-led government in New Delhi has also prompted a state-wide strike by privately owned buses and trucks.
