Classes in colleges across Kashmir remained suspended for the fourth day today and authorities discontinued teaching in higher secondary institutions for a day as a precautionary measure in the wake of students' protest against alleged highhandedness of security forces.

Teaching in all colleges across the Kashmir Valley remained suspended for the fourth day on the trot following orders of Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, Baseer Khan, officials said.

The administration had on Monday issued orders for the closure of Kashmir University, all colleges and higher secondary schools on Tuesday after students protested the alleged highhandedness of security forces against students of Degree College, Pulwama, last week.

The suspension of classes in the colleges was later extended by another day.
