Class work to resume from today
Srinagar: A local court Tuesday bailed out Kashmir University student Muzamil Farooq Dar whose arrest had sparked protests in the university forcing suspension of class work.
Dar according to family members was arrested by police on flimsy grounds claiming that his mobile phone was allegedly used by a militant. The detention of Dar had sparked violent protests prompting authorities to suspend class work and forcibly evict students from the varsity hostels. Islamic University of Science and Technology and Central University Kashmir too rallied behind Dars release.
Father of the detained youth confirmed that Muzamil has been bailed out by the court. Meanwhile, the class work in Kashmir University will resume on Wednesday. An official said that the students had been already informed that varsity will start functioning from July 1 (Wednesday). (CNS)
