Over two dozen students were injured in clashes with the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama town on Saturday, police said.
Students of a local college objected to the setting up of a ‘Naka’ (checkpost) outside the college and engaged in stone-pelting at the security forces, police said.
Security forces used tear smoke shells to disperse the protesting students who kept on re-grouping to engage the security forces in pitched clashes.
Reports from the town said around two dozens students including some girls were injured in these clashes.
One of the protesting students was hit on the head by a tear smoke canister and has been shifted to Srinagar city for treatment.
