Coaching institutes in Jammu & Kashmir to remain closed for 90 days

Kathua rape case: Mobile internet services temporarily suspended in Srinagar to check rumour-mongering

The Jammu and Kashmir government on Sunday ordered all private tuition centres in the Valley closed for three months in a bid to contain relentless student protests against the brutal rape and murder of an eight-year-old nomad girl in Kathua.

Notably, the students including boys and girls from nearly every district took to streets and also clashed with the government forces to protest against the rape and murder case of a minor nomadic girl from Kathua.

Education Minister said that during the discussion in the meeting many such points were discussed, due to which the students' attention was diverting from studies. He appealed to parents to help the government in keeping schools and colleges open.

Students in the Valley have been staging near-daily protests against the Kathua incident and clashing with security personnel.

The principals told the meeting that whenever students start protesting peacefully, they are stopped by the police station, which leads to clashes. "And if they still want to come on roads then we will close educational institutions for ever and students will be responsible for it", he said.

The decision comes just a day after Bukhari had advised students to control their emotions and resume classes.

Stating that he was surprised with parents worrying over the closure of coaching centres, Bukhari said: "Coaching is only needed when the school system is not good".

Chairman of JKLF (H), Javaid Ahmad Mir, while talking to Kashmir News Bureau stated - "The government has failed on all counts and making innocent students scapegoat for its failures". We have already completed 50% of our syllabus in tuition classes. The minister said as per government rules, there will be no compromise on attendance of students in the schools.

Coaching centre administrators sought CM Mehbooba Mufti's intervention.

He also directed the director school education Kashmir to submit list of teachers, masters and lecturers who are working in private coaching centres. "It will ruin the students' career besides sending wrong and confusing signals among the common masses in the Valley", said a Congress spokesman.
