J&K: Protesters seek release of arrested youth



Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Front (JKDF) on Thursday staged protest here seeking release of three of its activists who were arrested for disrupting Assembly proceedings in Srinagar.

Raising anti-government slogans, a large number of activists assembled at the Tallab Tillo Chowk and blocked vehicular traffic, forcing police to use mild force to disperse the protesters.

The Assembly in Srinagar witnessed unruly scenes on October 08 as three JKDF activists unfurled the flag of a newly-floated party and shouted slogans demanding implementation of the employment policy.

After the incident, Speaker Mohammad Akbar Lone had ordered suspension of five security personnel.
