Srinagar, May 15: Protests against the rape of a minor girl in Sumbal area of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district continued for the fourth consecutive day on Wednesday, demanding justice.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

However, various educational institutions across the Valley remained closed today as precautionary measure.

The class work at various colleges and higher secondary schools in Srinagar, Bandipora, Anantnag, Baramulla, Bandipora, Ganderbal, Kupwara, Budgam and other districts was suspended following the protests against Bandipora incident.

On Tuesday, the students of different educational institutions demanded justice, stating that involved person should be hanged till death. Some of the protests including at Amar Singh College, Bemina Degree College turned violent on Tuesday during which clashes erupted between students and forces.

Moreover, the protests against the incident continued today. Scores of people assembled at Ganta Ghar (Clock Tower) here at the commercial hub Lal chowk and demanded justice.

They were holding banners and placards reading slogans against rapists, saying that such actions are creating fear among the girls in the society. “We demand exemplary punishment against the culprit so that no one could dare to do such a heinous crime in future,” the protesters said.

Moreover, the Shia-Sunni coordination committee has also appealed to the people to maintain calm and end protests to give police a chance to probe the incident transparently so that guilty is given an exemplary punishment. (KNS)
