On Monday when class 12th examinations started across Kashmir, police arrested a class 12th student from Nowhatta area of old city in Srinagar.
The arrested student has been identified as Abdul Wahid Dar son of Ghulam Ahmad Dar, a resident of Pandan Nowhatta.
Police has confirmed his arrest.
A police officer at police station Nowhatta confirmed the arrest and said that Wahid was wanted in a case for his involvement in a stone pelting case.
The cop told Kashmir Life that Wahid was arrested in a case under FIR no: 99 of 2016 under sections 148, 149, 336, 152 registered in police station Nowhatta.
Meanwhile, Wahid’s sister told Kashmir Life that he left home to fetch notes of political science from a book seller. “On the way police arrested him.”
She said that her brother is supposed to appear in his “Education” paper on Wednesday and they are worried about his career. The family has sought Wahid’s immediate release.
Late in the afternoon, the court of Abdul Rashid Dar, Principal Sessions Judge Srinagar, granted bail to Wahid. His lawyer pleaded before the court that since Wahid has to appear in the examination, his continued detention could impact his career seriously.
The court felt convinced with the arguments and granted him bail later in the afternoon.
“Later in the evening, after producing bail document before the police official of Nowhatta police station, Wahid was set free from detention,” family members of Wahid told Kashmir Life.
