Amid complete shutdown, a massive protest rock Kashmir University campus Thursday against the detention of varsity student Muzamil Farooq Dar by police.
Students assembled before the English Department and demanded immediate release of Dar.
“We also demand that such detention shouldn’t stop immediately in the varsity,” one student said. “Besides we condemn the harassment of students, who were demanding release of Muzamil Dar in yesterday’s protest, by authorities inside varsity’s hostel last night.”
The students in rage pitched slogans against the KU administration besides pitching: “Hum Sab Muzamil Hai (We are all Muzamil).”
The protesting students said Muzamil, a resident of Kakapora, Pulwama, studying in varsity’s English department was “picked up by the police” in front of the Sir Syed Gate on Monday.
To protest the detention, students yesterday locked the Sir Syed and Rumi gates of the University and assembled before VC chamber to demand Dar’s release.
KU Vice Chancellor, Khursheed Andrabi was quoted as saying: “I called the Inspector General of Police thrice. He told me that they have evidence that the boy has some connections with militancy. I have also written a letter to Director General of Police seeking his release.”
