Srinagar, : Jammu & Kashmir National Conference on Monday condemned police lathi-charge on students including girls who were questioning Desh Bhagat University administration’s latest directive on their relocation to non-accredited colleges.
In a statement, JKNC State Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said the physical assault on Kashmiri students is a grim reminder of how they continue to face the brunt of targeted assaults even by uniformed men. “University administration is duty-bound to address the concerns of their students. They should not have allowed the Punjab police to intervene in this administrative issue who thrashed the innocent students. They need to act and stop such incidents from taking place. Also the university administration is duty bound to address the concerns raised by students,” the spokesperson said.
“Girl students were thrashed brutally for no fault of theirs. This is unacceptable and should be condemned by all,” he said, demanding a thorough and fast track investigation by the Punjab government.(GNS)
