Srinagar:

The unrest in Jammu and Kashmir intensified on Monday after clashes broke out between security forces and agitating students near a college in Srinagar on Monday, police said.

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 this morning, a police official said.

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, the official said, adding clashes were going on when last reports came in.
