A teacher who was arrested by the Jammu and Kashmir police in connection with a terror case died in custody. The incident has triggered protests in many parts of the state. A magisterial inquiry has been ordered to find out the cause and circumstances leading to his death.

The incident triggered massive protests and clashes in Awantipore as hundreds of students took to streets demanding action against those responsible for his death.

The family of the victim said Rizwan Asad had no links with any terror group and they were being harassed just because they are supporters of Jamaat-e-Islami, an organisation banned by the government last month.

Reacting to the incident, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has demanded an exemplary punishment for the "killers" of the man.

He further added,"I had hoped custodial deaths were a thing of our dark past. This is an unacceptable development and must be investigated in a transparent, time bound manner. Exemplary punishment must be handed out to the killers of this young man,".
