‘Surprised’ Over Continuing Protests: Naeem

Srinagar—Minister Naaem Akhtar on Thursday expressed “surprise and dismay” over the continuing student protests in the Valley on the Kathua rape and murder case.

“What is the occasion for protests, stone pelting when case is solved, accused in jail and trial on? Shouldn’t they be attending classes instead,” the senior Peoples Democratic Party leader said in a tweet.
