NIT Srinagar unrest: Centre sends 2 member team

Srinagar, Apr 6: The centre has sent a two member team to the Srinagar NIT in the wake of unrest on the campus. The team is expected to meet with both the administration of the NIT and also the students who have alleged that they were being ill-treated by the police.

There has been unrest on the campus since the non-local students protested the cheering of the West Indies team in the wake of them beating India in the just concluded T-20 cricket world cup. The team from the centre would assess the situation in the wake of the students crying out to Delhi for help.

Many students have said that they want to return to their home towns as they do not feel safe in the campus.

Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh has assured of a solution and even said that he had spoken with the Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti about the situation.

The students who are from outside the state have alleged lathi charge by the police. They also said that the situation was intentionally aggravated when a bunch of youth from the canteen pelted stones in a bid to escalate tensions.

They have also demanded that the minor exams be postponed as they were not in a mental position to write the same.
