At least 100 Kashmiri students have been wounded during clashes with security forces in Indian-administered Kashmir as anger over a weekend police raid on a college led to protests.
Meanwhile, authorities on Monday afternoon snapped mobile Internet services across Kashmir as student protests swelled across the Valley following the thrashing of students of Pulwama Degree College by government forces on Saturday.
Students in the Kashmir Valley continued protests for the third consecutive day on Wednesday, forcing the authorities to close down all 46 colleges for two more days.
Teenagers in school uniform and women students wearing white headscarves were among the protesters, who chanted anti-India slogans and threw stones at government forces.
"I hope @MehboobaMufti has thought through the implications of mass student protests across the valley".
According to the Hindustan Times, the students began throwing stones at security forces in response to the installation of a military checkpoint near the campus.
The Jammu and Kashmir State Human Rights Commission has taken cognisance of the allegedly disproportionate use of force against the students at the Pulwama college.
Mufti has also sought a report from Police about the surfacing of some videos in the valley, terming the acts in them as "unacceptable and atrocious".
Kashmir has been facing a wave of violence since the local elections on April 9, when government troops killed eight people in deadly clashes.
Students had clashed with security forces, protesting against an alleged raid by security personnel on the degree college in Pulwama on Saturday.
All examinations scheduled for Tuesday have also been postponed, an official said. Kashmir witnessed deadly protests after a well-known separatist militant was killed a year ago.
Monday's protests were called by Kashmir University Students Union, a banned student body. "What is different now is that this case has been documented, thanks to social media".
The Kashmir conflict is at the heart of tension between India and Pakistan. Sources said terrorists are addressing small gatherings of people in many areas of south Kashmir urging people to remain loyal to the movement.
India also accuses Pakistan of supporting separatist fighters in Kashmir, a claim which Pakistan denies.
