College Students Drop Pens, Pick Up Stones in Kashmir

College Students Drop Pens, Pick Up Stones in Kashmir

Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Baseer Khan in an order said that all educational institutions from universities, colleges and higher secondary schools shall remain closed on Tuesday.

Footage apparently showing a civilian tied to the front of an army jeep to deter protesters from throwing stones at the vehicle has also caused outrage after it was circulated on social media last week. More than 50 students had been injured as the security forces used teargas and shotgun pellets against the male and female students who were protesting against the police establishing a checkpoint outside the campus. Since the college is just a wall away from the police headquarters, they started pelting stones on it.

Police and army officials say dozens of local youths have joined the rebel ranks since then. Some schools including Delhi Public School at Srinagar had declared holiday on Monday in view of the growing tensions and resentment in the student community against Saturday's incidents in Pulwama. Colleges in Bejebehara and Khanabal are also on boil.

Many students sustained injuries in police action across the Valley. "A lady constable had a fracture in her arm", it added.

"I hope Mehbooba has thought through the implications of mass student protests across the valley. This is a deeply worrying situation (sic)", the former J&K chief minister wrote on his Twitter handle.

The cops cleared the students from the road and pushed them back to the college, where the clashes between the two sides continued till afternoon. Police used tear smoke shells and various students are reportedly injured. "It has been a nightmarish day for the entire education sector", said G.N. Var, the chairman of the association in a statement here.

Soon after, protests broke out in nearby Women's College and other colleges in the city and elsewhere in the valley.

Students clashed with government forces in Indian Kashmir on Monday as they protested a police raid on a college, in the latest outbreak of violence to hit the restive disputed territory. There was no report of any user of force by the police though the police is deployed around. He succumbed to injuries while another person was injured in the incident.

Injured students had to be transported to a hospital in Srinagar for specialised treatment.

A petrol bomb was hurled at a CRPF party in Rainawari area at Srinagar but no one was hurt, police said. They said the clashes left many, including security forces personnel, injured. Its chairperson Justice Bilal Nazki has while took cognizance of the matter directed Superintendent of Police Pulwama to file a detailed report on the incidents within two weeks, a spokesman of the commission said.
