No casualties were reported in the incident.

Clashes broke out on Monday between protesting students and security forces at S P College here, police said. No casualties were reported in the incident.

A group of students tried to take out a protest march from S P College on Maulana Azad Road in Srinagar but were prevented by the police, a police official said.

He said some students indulged in stone-pelting following which the cops and other security forces used batons to chase them away.

Colleges opened in Kashmir on Monday after a gap of five days as authorities shut higher educational institutions as a precautionary measure in the wake of valley-wide student protests last Monday against alleged highhandedness of security forces with students in Pulwama on April 15.
