A day after clashes broke out between school students and Army officials, all the schools and colleges in Jammu and Kashmir have been shut down for a day.
More than 200 school students were injured when the security officials retaliated to the stone pelting via tear gas shells.
The stone-pelters were all in uniform and belonged to S.P College in the valley. They had their faces covered and blindly threw stones at the Army officials in order to disrupt their work. The students blocked the Maulana Azad road in Srinagar to protest against the army’s action on students in Pulwama, where more than two dozen students got injured.
The students of the S.P. College also resorted to stone throwing on security forces and the armed police in which the Station House Officer (SHO) of the Kothibagh police station got injured.
Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday sought Presidential rule should be implemented in the state in the wake of disturbance and unrest.
