New Delhi: NIT students in Jammu and Kashmir staged a protest on Saturday near the NIT campus against J&K police. The protest turned into a clash between the students and cops, and the police had to resort to lathicharge to disperse the crowd. 
 
As per current reports, some students have been hospitalised due to the lathicharge. The NIT students were backed by other student’s organisations during the protest. The protest was organised by the NIT students to demand corporal punishment against the police officers responsible for thrashing their fellow students in the earlier incidents of lathicharge in April. 
 
The fresh protest by the NIT students has again created unrest in the area and heavy police force has been deployed to maintain law and order.
