The three Kashmiri engineering students were arrested again on Monday in Karnataka after protests broke out against the police for releasing them on the execution of a bond under Section 169 of CrPC.
Reports said that the three engineering students from Kashmir were arrested on Saturday for allegedly raising pro-Pakistan slogans and posting it on social media on the first anniversary of the militant attack that left scores of CRPF men dead at Lethpora.
They were let off on Sunday upon the execution of a bond under Section 169 of CrPC. “They (Kashmiri students) have been arrested, produced before the court and remanded in judicial custody,” reports quoted the Hubballi-Dharwad police Commissioner R Dileep as having said.
The police had come under severe criticism for releasing the youths on Sunday. According to police sources, they were apprehended on Monday morning and taken to court. The action came after members of right-wing organisations staged demonstrations outside the police station on Sunday, said the reports.
