SRINAGAR (KIMS) — The seven students of Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (SKUAST) Kashmir who were arrested and booked under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) have been granted bail by a local Court in Ganderbal district on Saturday.
The Court granted bail to these students after Jammu and Kashmir Police dropped charges under Section 13 of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act-1967 against them.
These students were arrested and booked under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) for allegedly celebrating India’s defeat in the Cricket World Cup final match against Australia last month.
The police took action against these students after a non-local student had lodged complaint against them alleging that ‘they raised objectionable and pro-Pakistan’ slogans during the match. — (KIMS)
