Holding banners and placards that read, ‘Hang till death’, ‘Give justice to Kathua girl’, besides other slogans, the protesting students tried to take out a protest march, demanding death penalty to the culprits.
However, security forces deployed in the area swung into action and stopped the protesting students from moving ahead. As the students didn’t back down, security forces resorted to lathicharge and burst teargas shells to disperse the demonstrators, who were pelting stones.At least five students were injured in the incident. The injured were immediately taken to District hospital Anantnag from where one of them was referred to a hospital in Srinagar.(UNI)
