SRINAGAR: A troupe of Indian army soldiers entered a private school campus in Srinagar on Monday morning creating troublesome situation.
Sources in the school said that the army men entered the main campus of Hussaini Public Higher Secondary School at HMT and harassed the students of tenth class.
“The incident happened before 10 am when the class work was on shortly after opening of the school in the morning,” sources said.
“The army men had a list with them written on paper and entered class tenth where they harassed and threatened the students.”
The army men belonged to 2 RR of Indian army based in HMT known as ‘Koker-farm camp’.
“The soldiers used foul mouth against the chairperson of the school, who, however put up a brave face and resisted the move of armed personnel to harm any student,” a student said. “The army men were perturbed and retreated later.”
In her 60s, Ms Kulsum runs the school from two-campuses with around 1200 students on rolls. She lives adjacent to school premises.
Soon after the incident, Superintendent of J&K Police (Srinagar-West) reached the school premises where officials from the army also came.
SDPO Srinagar (West) said, “The issue has been settled and there is no problem now.”
