Extending its support to the release of Kashmir University student Muzamil, the students of central university of Kashmir Monday rocked the campus with slogans demanding release of Muzamil instantly.
The students from all departments joined the protests which were held infront of the University Library. Students were chanting slogans against Police for detaining Muzamil and also against Kashmir University authorities for their ‘inhuman attitude’.
“We want immediate release of Muzamil, we CUK students are in full support of our brothers in KU, if he is not released then we will intensify our protests also,” asserted CUK students with banners in hands. The students were carrying placards reading “Muzamil—A student not a terrorist”, “In solidarity with Muzamil”, “Free Muzamil”. The state police had issued a statement to the press on Wednesday, two days after Muzamil was detained, saying: “Police has arrested Muzamil Farooq, son of Farooq Ahmad, resident of Gandebagh of Pulwama for his links with militants. He was wanted in a case under FIR No. 90 of Police Station Rajbagh.” In the meantime, many people from the Valley also joined the chorus for his release on social networking sites with #FreeMuzamil garnering scores of mentions on Twitter.
