The college management had arranged a two-day ‘Youth Summit’ in collaboration with the Indian Army’s 27 Rashtriya Rifles deployed at Kaloosa in Bandipora which was to be attended by senior Indian Army, police and civil officials.

The protest by the students forced the authorities to call off the event and the officials of 27 Rashtriya Rifles to leave the venue.
In a video widely shared on the social networking sites, Indian forces’ vehicles can be seen leaving the GDC Bandipora amid pro-freedom, pro-Pakistan and anti-India slogans by students.
