Students clash with security forces in Kashmir

IANS  |  Srinagar 

At least 14 people, including four students and 10 policemen, were injured on Thursday when students clashed with security forces in various districts of Jammu and Kashmir, although nobody sustained serious injuries in the clashes, police said.

Students came out of schools in north, south and central and indulged in intense stone pelting at the security forces.

Security forces used tear smoke shells to chase away the protesting students.

Police said security forces used maximum restraint to ensure that no protesting student suffered any serious injury.

Students unrest started in the Valley after security forces entered a local college in south Kashmir's Pulwama district on April 15.

Passions rose among the students community after pictures showing students being roughed up inside the Pulwama college went viral on social networking sites.
