Protesting students clashed with the security forces at many places in Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday.
Students boycotted classes in Pulwama, Bandipora, Shopian, Kulgam, Ganderbal and Chadoora towns and took to the streets, engaging security forces in fierce stone pelting clashes.
Security forces used tear smoke shells to disperse the students.
Reports said over a dozen students and security men were injured in these clashes.
Kashmir University Students Union (KUSU) has appealed to students in the Valley to rejoin classes.
