Srinagar: The Students of Islamic University of Science and Technology (IUST) Awantipora Thursday protested against what they called Forces highhandedness earlier in the day.
Pertinently, government forces resorted to aerial firing and tear smoke shelling in and around the IUST early today creating panic and chaos.
Sources in the IUST told Kashmir Reader that aerial firing by Army personnel took place outside the University campus but it created panic among the students and teachers who were busy in their routine work.
“Soon Army personnel and police entered the campus and fired live ammunition and teargas shells,” they alleged.
Meanwhile, witnesses said that Student protests were going on in the University against entering of forces into the campus.
