‘Decision after completion of probe’
SRINAGAR: Authorities of the Swami Vivekanand Subharti University (SVSU) Meerut Monday refuted media reports that suggested the revocation of suspension orders against the 67 Kashmiri students accused of cheering Pakistani side in their match with India in the recently concluded Asia Cup Cricket.
“We have not contacted nor invited any student so far. We are waiting for the enquiry report from the committee. The media reports are totally false,” PK Garg, Registrar of Meeruts Swami Vivekanand Subharti University (SVSU) said.
He said that the decision over the suspension of the students will be taken only after the probe ordered into the incident is completed.
“Once the enquiry is over, then we will take decision about the suspended students he said.
He also refuted the reports that suggested that the Vice Chancellor of the Varsity has been invited to Jammu and Kashmir. “I don’t know about such invitation neither has VC told me anything related to it,” he said.
On Monday last, , the authorities of SVSU had suspended nearly 67 Kashmiri students for cheering Pakistan cricket team during their match with India in Mirpur Bangladesh.
The students were ‘thrown out’ from the Varsity and they reached home after three days. The students were also charged with sedition by Meerut Police under section 124A as well as 153 and 427.
However, after a hue and cry in Kashmir, the sedition charges were dropped while other two sections were not.
