About 100 Kashmir students hurt in clash with Indian troops

About 100 Kashmir students hurt in clash with Indian troops

On Saturday, National Conference chief and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah won the Srinagar by-poll even as a youngster was killed and several more were injured in police firing in Pulwama.

They said police fired dozens of teargas shells and used batons to chase away the protesting students who indulged in stone-pelting and fought pitched battles with them.

Dozens of students, including women, were injured on Monday in intense clashes with the police and other security forces in different towns of Kashmir, including summer capital Srinagar.

The call for holding protests against the Pulwama incidents had been issued by a students' union. Amid heightened tensions, the mobile Internet services have again been suspended in the Valley.

His condition is stated to be stable, he said, adding the police are investigating the matter.

Police said they were maintaining "extreme restraint" while dealing with the student protests.

Protests and clashes also erupted between students in Pulwama town despite the authorities having ordered the closure of the college there for two days following Saturday's incident.

"All the universities, Higher Secondary Schools and colleges shall remain closed tomorrow as a precautionary measure", an official said.

The latest unrest was triggered by a police raid on a college in Pulwama district over the weekend.

Locals in the area, however, insisted that troops inside a paramilitary force vehicle fired after it was attacked by stone pelters.

Violence was also reported from Kupwara and Handwara, where scores of students were injured.

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.

The Indian army is reportedly looking into videos showing its members committing horrific abuses in Kashmir - an 86,000-square-mile disputed land in the northern part of the Indian subcontinent. In the videos, a PDP leader and a trader seek forgiveness and announce disassociation from mainstream politics on gunpoint.

The FIR has been registered under sections 342, 149, 506 and 367 of Ranbir Penal Code against unidentified Army personnel and investigation taken up, a police official said.

It is believed Dar was targeted after he was accused of pelting stones at the Indian army personnel.

In recent months, the use of pellet guns by Indian forces in Kashmir has drawn widespread criticism as the weapons have caused permanent disabilities among victims.

"This is not the first human shield case".

The video footage shows a man tied to the front of the vehicle.
