The Office of the SP Pulwama has also said in the report that the “police didn’t enter inside the college premises despite grave provocation from the mob, except near the main gate to maneuver the vehicles and to chase the mob away as there was every possibility that if not chased, they could have overpowered the police deployment, which could have overpowered the police deployment”.
