What police says


Police Thursday evening issued a statement regarding arrest of Kashmir University student saying the student has links with militants.

“Police have arrested Muzammil Farooq son of Farooq Ahmad resident of Gandebagh Pulwama. Muzamil, a student of Kashmir University’s English department was arrested for his links with militants. He was wanted in a case under FIR No. 90 of Police Station Rajbagh,” the statement read.

“Today some students of the University disrupted Class Work in the campus and tried to mislead other students saying that Muzammil was arrested for opposing Yoga on Sunday which is totally baseless and false,” the statement said adding, “Rounds of talks were held between KU administration and the protesting youth with an eye being kept on law and order by KU security wing and Proctorial wing. However, despite clarifications about the arrest and fervent requests to end the protest some trouble mongers among the students instigated the youth who became violent and started damaging University property.”

The statement further said, “students vandalized the campus property, broke window panes and doors and other furniture in administration block. They also hurled rocks and stones on buildings and KU security officials. Flash Bang Stun Shells were used to restore law and order in the campus. No injuries were reported.”
