Protest by students against closure of Shopian degree college
SRINAGAR, Jun 15: The closure of Degree College Shopian after disturbances, has led to protests by students.

After his killing, protests were held by students at Shopian, Pulwama, Pampore and some other places in south Kashmir. Clashes occurred between them and police and security forces. While colleges in rest of the places re-opened but Shopian college continued to remain shut.

The students today held protests against authorities alleging that government ruining their career and are frequently shutting down the college.

“The government frequently closes down the colleges across Kashmir while Degree College Shopian is shut after we protested against the brutal murder of a student of this college at the hands of Indian Forces,” said protesting students.

A number of students today blocked the road at Gagrin area of the district resulting in the disruption of vehicular movement. The students alleged that authorities intentionally suspended the class work to trouble the students.

“As we visit college, we are being asked that teaching staff will not take any classes. Ironically, the teaching staff along with the principal did not bother to attend the classes,” the students said.

Officials from Police and Civil administration rushed to spot to pacify the students. The officials assured that class work in the college will be resumed without any delay.

“The government has directed us to shutdown the college after students protest against the killing of their fellow student. We have to follow the directions,” said an official from the College.
