Almost eight months after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter causing massive unrest in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the students across the state are all set to return to the school that were shut due to the chaos in the valley.

The killings triggered longest-ever agitation that claimed lives of 100 persons and wounded more than 15,000 people.

The High Court who took cognisance of the situation directed the security officials to ensure that the schools are safe from the miscreants. Hundreds of students suffered grave injuries and some of them even are partially blinded due to the use pellet guns by the security officials to disperse the protestors.
