After Pulwama college, clashes between security forces and students in Srinagar
Clashes broke out between security forces and agitating students near a college in Srinagar on Monday, police said.
A group of students were holding a protest rally near Sri Pratap (SP) College on Moulana Azad road close to the Lal Chowk city centre this morning, a police official said.
He said security forces asked the protesters to disperse but they did not budge and started pelting stones on the forces, leading to clashes.
Security forces used tear smoke shells to chase away the protesters, the official said, adding that clashes were going on when the last reports came in.
Students’ groups had called for protests against the “brutality perpetrated by forces on students” of Degree College Pulwama in south Kashmir, where clashes with security forces left many injured last week.
