SRINAGAR: Students of Government Boys Higher Secondary school Mattan on Monday stages protest against the alleged use of force on them by paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) recently, which they said resulted into life-threatening injuries to their schoolmate.

Danish, a 11th standard student from Mattan is battling for life at SKIMS Soura after suffering a firearm injury on May 27, hours after the killing of top Hizb-ul-Mujahedeen commander Sabzar Ahmad Bhat in Tral.

The protesting students alleged that troopers of 96 BN CRPF from the nearby camp opened fire without any provocation, resulting into life-threatening injuries to Sameer.
