Protests erupts at Kashmir University over killing of civilian in Security Forces firing

Srinagar, Sep 27 (IENews) Protests broke out at the Kashmir University (KU) and Islamic University of Science and Technology (IUST), Awantipora, on Thursday.

The rally was to protest the killing of 24-year-old Mohammad Saleem Malik, who was allegedly shot dead by security forces during a search operation at Noorbagh area in downtown Srinagar.

Scores of KU students from different departments took out a protest rally inside the campus.

Raising ‘anti-government’ and ‘anti-forces’ slogans, the protesting students demanded action against the security force personnel responsible for the killing.

“What is the point of studying if I can get killed anytime, anywhere without any reason? The youth in downtown was killed in cold blood. His only fault was that he wanted to check if burglars had entered his house. If there were militants, where did they go?” a protesting student told

The students tried to take out a protest rally outside the university campus.

However, the university gates were locked and the protesting students were not allowed to move out of the campus. Later, the students dispersed peacefully.

Similar protests were also witnessed in IUST, where students took out a rally inside the university campus to protest the civilian killing. Though, the protestors later dispersed peacefully.
