Violent protests erupted at the Islamic University of science and technology (IUST) campus in south Kashmir’s Pulwama against the killing of three alleged militants in an encounter in this summer capital Srinagar, Kashmir Reader reported.

Reports said that scores of students held a protest demonstration this morning when news spread in the campus that three alleged militants have been killed by government forces in an encounter in Srinagar’s Fateh Kadal locality.

The students chanting slogans  assembled on the highway. However, the government forces deployed there resorted to baton charge and fired tear gas canisters.

“This led to the outbreak of fierce clashes. Many students are holed up inside the campus due to ongoing clashes,”  Kashmir Reader quoted witnesses as saying.

In-charge PRO, IUST Dr Aijaz Qureshi told Kashmir Reader that certain elements held a protest and clashed with forces outside the campus.

“We are looking for a safe passage for the students stranded at the campus,” he said.
