Twenty-four people, including 12 security personnel, were injured today in clashes between stone-pelting students and law enforcing agencies in the heart of Srinagar, on a day colleges reopened in Kashmir after a five-day shutdown ordered by the government.
The clashes broke out as colleges in the city reopened following skirmishes last week between students and government forces.
The effort was captured by another photographer who then helped Yasin load Jan into a auto being driven by a civilian to take her to a hospital. Students of Srinagar's prestigious Government Women's College and juniors from the nearby Kothi Bagh Higher Secondary School suddenly descended on Lal Chowk.
Yasin and Khan then resumed taking photographs of the protest.
Other officials said several students, passersby and a photojournalist were also hurt in the clashes.
The home minister directed the officials to ensure intensified vigil along the International Border and the Line of Control to foil attempts by the militants to sneak into Jammu and Kashmir during the summer, the sources said.
Pertinently, student protests are going on in the Kashmir valley since last week after at least 60 students were injured in force's action on Degree College students of Pulwama.
Police released a brief statement after Thursday's protest saying Jan had been hurt in a stone-throwing incident, referring to a common practice by protesters of hurling bricks and stones at police and paramilitary troops.
Students in Pulwama college were protesting against establishing a naka near the college main gate by security forces, who later burst teargas shells, fired pellets and resorted to lathicharge in which over 60 students were injured. Marbles are often used by Indian forces as ammunition used against protesters. "They hit the streets more than eight times despite tear-smoke shelling", said a police officer on condition of anonymity. Authorities didn't say what they were looking for in that raid.
The students had come out in waves from the colleges, including the premier Sri Pratap College, and higher secondary schools and engaged the police at multiple spots.
The angry students also chanted slogans against Indian rule over the Muslim-majority Himalayan region.
The region has been divided between India and Pakistan but claimed in full by both since the two partitioned and gained independence from Britain in 1947. About 70,000 people have been killed in the uprising and in a subsequent Indian military crackdown.
