Srinagar: Hundreds of Kashmir University girls who were ‘locked’ in their respective hostels Monday held protests against the Shopian killings soon after they were allowed to move out.
Some three hundred girls residing in two Kashmir University girl’s hostels, Qurait-ul-Ain Hyder (RA) and Rabia Basriya (RA) hostels were earlier allegedly barred from coming out to prevent their protest in view of the scheduled Science Congress in the campus.
Soon after the girl students were allowed to move out they marched up to the Zabarwan guest house, where participants of the Science Congress were having lunch inside a tent, witnesses said.
The angry girls raised pro-freedom and pro-Pakistan slogans to register their protest, they added. They strongly condemned the killings of 13 militants and four civilians at the hands of government forces in Shopian.
