SRINAGAR: Security 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.
