Girl students take lead as protest rocks Kashmir
On Thursday, colleges across Kashmir remained closed as protest headed by students continued across the Valley. However, schools remained open and saw decent attendance. The colleges will remain closed on Friday too, after the divisional commissioner asked authorities of all the colleges to suspend work to avoid any untoward incident.
College students started their protest in the Valley after more than 50 students were injured when the police entered the Government Degree College in Pulwama to detain students on April 15.
