The minister for education Syed Muhammad Altaf Bukhari on Sunday ordered the closure of all private tuition centres in Kashmir valley for 90 days in the backdrop of student protests.

He made the announcement while chairing a meeting of chief education officers, zonal education officers and principals of higher secondary schools.

"Report should go to the concerned district administration as well. All coaching centres will remain closed for next 90 days," the minister said.

However, the order shall have no bearing on coaching centres which provide coaching for professional courses for the students who have already passed 12th class examination.

He also asked the director school education Kashmir to submit list of teachers, masters and lecturers who are working in private coaching centres.

The decision has been taken in view of widespread student protests over the horrific gangrape-and-murder of an eight-year-old nomadic girl in Kathua.
