Student protest on decline:IGP
Srinagar: IGP Kashmir said the incidents of student violence have been largely brought under control as about 90 percent attendance has been recorded in colleges and schools across the Kashmir valley.
IGP SJM Geelani, addressing media, said attempts are being made by certain forces to spread student protests in new areas and disturb normal student activities.
“ During inquiry of the Handwara incident it was revealed that students were instigated by outsiders. Some arrests have also been made. It was also established that some students were paid to indulge in stone pelting,” said the IGP.
He said student protests started at Government Degree College Pulwama, on April 15 where students pelted stones at police personnel and also attacked private vehicle. The protests then spread to other areas but they have been largely brought under control .
