Students Protesting Afzal's Hanging Held in Dehradun
A group of Kashmiri students was taken into custody here today as a preventive measure while demonstrating at the busy Ghanta Ghar chawk here in protest against the hanging of Parliament terror attack convict Afzal Guru, police said.

Sixteen Kashmiri students studying in different institutions in the city were held as a preventive measure when they gathered at Ghanta Ghar chowk and began shouting slogans in protest against Guru's execution, they said.

Though they were protesting peacefully but police had information that VHP activists were also planning to march to the busy chawk to stage a parallel demonstration justifying the terror convict's hanging.

Anticipating trouble, the students from Kashmir were taken into custody to avert any confrontation, a police official said.

The students have been booked under Section 151 of the CrPC which is a bailable offence.
