K-Traders for High Level Committee to Assess Situation of K-Students Studying Outside



Srinagar: Kashmir based traders have Friday expressed grave concern about the reports of “intimidation and harassment” caused to the Kashmir students in various Engineering Institutions situated in Jammu division.

“The keen interest taken by Dr Nirmal Singh, the Deputy Chief Minister, Jammu & Kashmir Government in regard to sorting out the problem of NIT Srinagar and at the same time adopting a quiet attitude viz-a-viz harassment caused to Kashmiri students at Jammu professional Institutes is baffling and if the things are allowed to unfold in the manner reported in the press, it will have repercussion felt all over causing great harm to the peace and economy of the State as a whole,” a statement issued by KCC&I president, Mushtaq Ahmed Wani, said.

“The  Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industry (Inc)  feels it to be its moral duty to seek peace to be maintained and the disruptive forces kept at bay and therefore urge the State Government not only  to ensure  peace and safety of students in the educational Institutions within the State, but appropriate measures be taken to safeguard the life, and  academic future of Kashmiri students studying in Rajasthan which is otherwise in peril, after the University of Rajasthan has suspended them from further studies in the University,” the statement added.

The  traders sought immediate deputation of a  high level team  to different Professional  Institutions / colleges and Universities to enquire and  assess the untoward situation, faced  by the Kashmiri   students now and then reported by  print media, so that safety of their life and  leisure  with studies is reassured  by the Government.
