Srinagar, Dec 16: Protests continued for second consecutive day in north Kashmir town of Sopore on Thursday against the arrest of two students by the Special Operations Group of Police.
Eyewitnesses told Greater Kashmir that scores of youth took to streets this morning near Degree College, demanding the release of the youth who were picked up from the college premises yesterday.
Shouting pro-freedom and anti-police slogans, the protesters pelted stones on the vehicles, bringing traffic movement on Sopore-Sangrama and Sopore-Rafiabad roads to halt for more than an hour.
The protesters alleged that police picked up the students when they were coming out of examination centre on Wednesday.
“The cops swooped upon them, bundled them in Rakshak vehicles and were taken to an unknown destination,” the students said.
Later, police swung into action and chased away the protesters.
