Pulwama: Following the violence and injuries to 54 students in Government Degree College Pulwama, Principal of the college Prof Abdul Hamid Sheikh said the forces created a complete chaos and violent situation in the educational institution.
Describing the situation, the principal said: “I was in the college premises in the afternoon and I saw students suddenly rushing towards the college gate. I too rushed towards the gate and saw two police vehicles (Rakshaks) entering into the college.”
“I stood infront of the vehicles and pleaded, with hands folded, to the policemen not to enter into the premises, since the tempers were high among students following the entry of an army vehicle into the college the other day”, he further added.
“I told the policemen that 5000 students are in the college and situation would turn bad. However, the policemen did not listen to my pleas and went ahead into the college. Suddenly, angry students shouted slogans and the policemen fired teargas shells onto them”, he alleges.
“Mayhem and chaos erupted into the college. Many girl students fainted, and a number of boys were injured due to teargas shells and also pellets guns. As more policemen rushed into the college, nobody was spared”, the Principal laments.
