Many Kashmiri  students’ sustained injuries after Indian police used teargas shells, chili smoke, water cannons and stun grenades to disperse them. They were protesting against the police raid in Degree College Pulwama last week in which more than forty students got injured in police action. According to students, a contingent of police and CRPF entered the college premises apparently to arrest some boys who had protested against the army presence in the college earlier this week. Hospital sources said 54 students were injured in the clashes. The injured included female students as well. Injured were shifted to Pulwama Hospital.
