In a statement, Geelani also appealed the international Rights groups to take a stock of the situation in the valley and impress upon India to being these “atrocities” to an end.

Geelani said that one of the arrested students, Muteeb had to appear in his practical exams on December 5 and while Imran Kondu had to appear in 11th class examinations on December 8. However none of them was allowed to appear in the examinations.
