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.

Indian police and paramilitaries allegedly raided the facility in search of students involved in anti-India protest. Several policemen including SHO of police station Kothi Bagh were also injured, police said.

The banned students' union of Kashmir University- the state's oldest university - had given a call for peaceful protests after troops reportedly used force against college students on Saturday in Pulwama district of south Kashmir, 35 kilometres away from Srinagar.
