Srinagar: After district Child Welfare Committee (CWC) asked the police to register the rape case under POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offence) and not Ranbir Penal Code, the accused in the rape of a minor girl in Bandipora has been booked under the Act.

Protests in Kashmir against the incident have continued with students clashing with police.

Authorities in Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday shut down most educational institutions in the valley, fearing further spurts in violence as the protests took centre-stage after two consecutive rape incidents were reported in Bandipora and Ganderbal districts.
