They said that students assembled on main road and chanted “pro-freedom” slogans. “Police lobbed tear gas canisters to disperse them which trigged clashes in the area.” Clashes were going on in the area when last reports came in.
Concerned police officials could not be reached despite repeated attempts.
Meanwhile, reports said that Police stopped the press from covering the clashes. “Police pelted stones on us and chased us away,” a photographer working with a local newspaper told Kashmir Life.
