Kathua: Students' protests, clashes in Ajas Bandipora

With clashes and protests from Students remaining unabated and becoming a daily norm throughout Kashmir especially after in backdrop of killings in South Kashmir, rape and murder of a Kathua Child the concern over loss of academic time of students is now becoming a raging debate.

The protests, especially by students, have forced authorities to close down most of the colleges and higher secondary educational institutions in the valley.

Akhtar's cabinet colleague and Shia leader Imran Ansari also appealed to the students to concentrate on their studies, asserting that justice would be delivered.

The protesters who were students have been demanding justice for the victim.

The districts affected are Srinagar, Ganderbal, Pulwama, Kulgam, Shopian and Anantnag.

Akhtar urged the students to attend their classes instead of protesting on the streets.

Students alleged that the policemen barged into the campus where they resorted to vandalism and also broke windowpanes of several cars parked there.

As the protests intensified, a police party reached at the spot to disperse the protesting students.

A photograph of the stone pelting that went viral on social media showed youth climbing on a police vehicle and pelting stones on it.

Protesting students demanding death to the criminals who raped and brutally killed eight year old girl in Kathua. However, there are no reports of any injuries.

Two FIRs have been lodged in the Kathua rape-murder case. "Such an incident happening in our country after 70 years of indepen-dence is shameful. It is our responsibility to ensure such a thing does not happen to any girl or woman", he said during his visit to Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Trust University in Jammu today.
