Students holding banners marched through the campus, chanting anti-army slogans.

They demanded a swift inquiry into the matter. The protestors blamed the authorities for turning a deaf ear towards the incident.

“Through out protest we want the authorities to know that such an incident has happened,” said Mudasir Ali, a student.

Students condemned the alleged violent act by the Army. They said that the Army personnel needed to learn some lessons on non-violence.

“In just a month he (J-K Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad) has spent millions to spread (Mahatma) Gandhi’s slogan of non-violence. I just want to tell our Chief Minister that instead of organising such seminars for students, he should do it for the Indian army,” said Sheikh.

Abdul Rashid Mir was allegedly shot down after he objected to alleged harassment by army men of the females accompanying him while he was passing through the Rawatpora forest on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the army has initiated a probe into the matter. They have arrested one soldier, Mohammad Tariq, for killing the teacher.

Police is also conducting an independent trial into the matter. (ANI)
