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.
