For second consecutive day, students at University of Kashmir Tuesday boycotted classes. They are protesting against the reported fee hike by the varsity authorities.

Reports and student witnesses said that intense protests erupted this morning at the Hazratbal campus with students marching across varsity lawns.

As varsity resumed its functioning on Monday students stayed away from the classes. They termed the reported fee hike as “crony capitalism”.

“The University is bound to take all stake holders into consideration on any issue,” a student leader said, “in this case, it is the student who is the primary stake holder and varsity has taken such a step even without notifying it before the decision was taken.”

The students demanded clearance from the varsity authorities. “It should be notified as what is happening in this case,” the students said.
