‘Student uprising’: We entered college campus at the request of principal, police say


The Jammu and Kashmir police on Wednesday said that they had entered the Pulwama Degree College campus in April this year at the request of its principal. The act of the police had triggered students’ uprising across Kashmir.

The police told the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) that they entered the campus in presence of the additional DC Pulwama and assistant commissioner revenue “to save the life of college principal, staff and girl students from the clutches of the miscreants and to save the college property from arson”.

Meanwhile, the SHRC directed the principal to appear before the commission and asked DC Pulwama to file the compliance report on November 23.

More than 55 students were injured on April 15 in police action, triggering protests in schools and colleges across the Valley.

In its report, however, the police said that it is not clear whether the injured were students as the “actual identity (of the persons) and the details given to hospital authorities remain a matter of investigation”.
