Srinagar: Fierce clashes broke out between Jammu and Kashmir police and students at Srinagar’s Lal Chowk on Monday as the Valley continued to remain tense over a viral video of the army allegedly using a man as a “human shield” against stone-pelters.

A group of students were holding a protest rally near Sri Pratap (SP) College on Moulana Azad Road close to the Lal Chowk city centre, a police official told PTI. He said security forces asked the protesters to disperse but they did not budge and started pelting stones on the forces, leading to clashes.

Security forces used tear smoke shells to chase away the protesters.

Students' groups had called for protests against the "brutality perpetrated by forces on students" of Degree College Pulwama in south Kashmir, where clashes with security forces left many injured.
