SRINAGAR: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders and activists on Saturday staged a protest in Srinagar and demanded release of Kashmiri students, who were arrested in Uttar Pradesh for allegedly celebrating Pakistan cricket team’s victory in T20 World Cup 2021.
Quoting PDP youth Coordinator Najumu Saqib news agency KNO reported that, “Jammu and Kashmir is under a threatening environment. The youth who are going out of State to study are being detained for celebrations.”
“The government’s claims about the peace in Jammu and Kashmir fall flat on the ground as the civilians are being killed, soldiers are being killed. Is this a peaceful atmosphere,” he said.
“We demand urgent release of Kashmiri students detained in UP and a legal enquiry against the people who beat the Valley students in Punjab,” they said.
