The students of SP College on Tuesday staged a peaceful protest march in Srinagar to demand justice for the eight-year-old Kathua girl who was raped and murdered earlier this year.

Dozens of students marched from the college campus to the historic clock tower at Lal Chowk and returned to the campus through residency road.

The students were demanding action against the accused in the case and said the family of victim should not be threatened.

“If government claims that culprits will be punished then why family of Kathua minor is getting threats. The culprits should be hanged till death,” said a female student.

Protests also erupted in Kashmir University (KU) where the students demanded justice for Kathua minor.

Reports said the students left from their departments and assembled at the campus and staged a peaceful protest march amid slogans.
