TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -The video footage shows a man tied to the front of the vehicle. He is seated upright with his hands and legs bound as the vehicle drives through the streets of the Muslim-majority region.

The Kashmir University Students Union on Monday held protests in all colleges and universities following the Saturday incident. The union said the police action was designed to help the state "rule by repression and fear."

Hundreds of students clashed with government forces in Indian Kashmir during protests against a police raid on a college in the main city of Srinagar.

Around 100 students were injured as police used batons and tear gas to quell the protests. The unrest also spread to other parts of the Kashmir valley.
