The Kashmiri students staged a massive protest against the arrests of several students during past two weeks of protests across Kashmir.
Raising pro-freedom and anti-India slogans, the protesting students started marching however they were intercepted by a large contingent of police and other government forces.
The forces used tear smoke canisters to disperse the protesting students, including girls. This triggered clashes resulting into injury to one of the protesting girls.
