Jammu and Kashmir police on Wednesday prevented a group of students of Kashmir University to take out a procession demanding identification of the culprits involved in alleged sex racket unearthed recently.
The students of the University, situated at Hazratbal on the outskirts of the city, made the attempt to take out the procession but were stopped by police at the main gate and persuaded them to return peacefully, official sources said.
Before making the attempt to take out the procession in violation of prohibitory orders, the students boycotted their classes and staged a demonstration within the premises of the university, shouting slogans against authorities for what they called shielding of the culprits, they said.
Several students leaders addressed the demonstrators and urged Jammu and Kashmir High Court to take serious note of the crime and brought the culprits to justice.
A similar demonstration was staged by the students of Islamia college in the city, sources said adding the demonstrators later dispersed peacefully.
