"In the resultant chaos, some students received minor injuries and a lot of them were discharged after first aid", the statement said.

Indian police and paramilitaries allegedly raided the facility in search of students involved in anti-India protest.

This is a deeply worrying situation (sic)", the former J&K chief minister wrote on his Twitter handle. Is @MehboobaMufti not alert to situation?
