Srinagar, May 1: Traffic on the Srinagar Airport road was today affected for an hour after students and teaching staff of D A V High School protested against the sale of school.

The students and teaching staff of more than 60-year-old school today took to streets and blocked the main road at Magarmal Bagh.

Raising slogans against the school management, the students and teachers said the sale of the school building and its ground was illegal.

'' Give us our school back'', they demanded and appealed to authorities to intervene and save their future.

They alleged that Kashmiri pandit management without taking the parents and teaching staff into confidence had reportedly sold the school property.

However, one person, who removed the school boards said they have purchased the entire complex from the management.

We have legal documents, including sale deed, he said.

Hundreds of vehicles remained stranded for an hour as there was no police official. However, traffic was allowed after a group of police personnel from Shergrahi police station reached the spot and assured the agitators that they will take the matter with higher authorities.

The DAV school was one of the leading schools before the Pandit management migrated from here after the eruption of militancy.
