A spokesman of Kashmir University said all university examinations scheduled for tomorrow have been postponed.

Sources said police has directed telecom companies operating in Valley to stop providing mobile internet services to its subscribers in the Valley.

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.

Students at Kashmir University also boycotted their classwork to stand in solidarity with the injured students.

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.

Students also indulged in heavy stone pelting at the security forces in Baramulla, Shopian, Kulgam, Anantnag, Dooru, Kupwara, Ganderbal, Tral and Bandipora towns.

The FIR has been registered under sections 342, 149, 506 and 367 of Ranbir Penal Code against unidentified Army personnel and investigation taken up, a police official said.

Some students were injured while throwing stones and bricks at police who tried chasing them off the roads.

Some schools, including the Delhi Public School at Srinagar, had declared a holiday on Monday in view of the growing tensions and resentment in the student community against Saturday's incidents in Pulwama. "A lady constable had a fracture in her arm", it added.

Main opposition party National Conference condemned the use of force against the students.

"I hope Mehbooba has thought through the implications of mass student protests across the valley".

The police statement had added, "The mob swelled as more students joined and pelted stones on the forces. To handle the stone pelting reinforcement was rushed to the spot". "One was referred to Srinagar hospital where his condition is stable".

The students also staged protests in other colleges in Srinagar.
