Clashes in Bandipora, protests in Chadura

At least six persons were injured on Thursday in  Ajas, Bandipora in clashes between the government forces and the students demanding punishment to the culprits in Kathua rape-and-murder case.

The students boycotted their classes and held a massive protest demanding exemplary punishment to the culprits in the horrific rape-and-murder of eight-year old Muslim nomadic girl in Kathua in January this year. The students were holding placards, which read: “Hang killers and rapists.”

Sources said the students soon clashed with the forces who fired teargas shells to disperse the protestors. “This triggered ding-dong battles between the two sides, in which at least five students and a police constable sustained minor injuries,” sources said.

“Constable Danish Ahmad was hit by a stone in his hand,” an official said. Sources said the five injured students were treated locally.

Meanwhile, reports of student protests were also received from Mantrigam higher secondary school Bandipora where students took out a protest rally in solidarity with Kathua rape victim.  Also the students held protests in Sopore.

Police fired teargas shells in the compound of sub district hospital Chadoora on Thursday when a protest rally was taken out by students here against the rape and murder of a minor girl in Kathua. Two persons, including a female student, were injured in the clashes.

Clashes erupted in Chadoora when scores of students took out a protest rally against the rape and murder of a minor girl in Kathua. 

Students of various educational institutions marched towards main Chowk raising slogans of justice for the rape and murder victim.   

“A boy received head injury in our hospital compound and a girl also sustained injured and has got three stitches,” said block medical officer Chadoora, Dilawar Ahmad. The boy with head injury has been shifted to SMHS hospital for further treatment.
