The police told the State Human Rights Commission on Wednesday that they had entered Pulwama Degree College in April this year, an act which triggered students' uprising, at the request of its principal.

The police told the commission that they entered the campus in presence of the additional DC Pulwama and assistant commissioner revenue "to save the life of college principal, staff and girl students from the clutches of the miscreants and to save the college property from arson." 

The SHRC directed the principal to appear before the commission and asked the DC Pulwama to file the compliance report on 23 November. 

More than 55 students were injured on April 15 in police action, triggering protests in schools and colleges across the Valley.

In its report, however, the police said that it is not clear whether the injured were students as the "actual identity (of the persons) and the details given to hospital authorities remain a matter of investigation".

The police report had been filed in response to a complaint filed by Mohammad Ahsan Untoo, chairman International Forum for Justice.
