Srinagar:
Government forces on Tuesday resorted to tear gas shelling to disperse college students protesting against Kathua rape-and-murder case in Sopore town of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.

An eye witness said the students of Degree College Sopore, which opened today after a week, tried to stage a protest outside the college.

However, forces deployed in the area resorted to tear gas shelling to break up the protest, triggering clashes.

Before stepping outside, the students staged a protest inside the college where they raised slogans in favour of justice to Kathua minor who was gangraped and murdered in Rasana village of Kathua in January this year.

Eight people have so far been arrested in the case, which has triggered global outrage.
