KUTA clarifies on ‘police interference’
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 28: The Kashmir University Teachers Association has clarified that its statement about the “police interference in academic affairs” published on City Page Tuesday had nothing do with the arrest of any teacher.
A KUTA spokesman said the association in its statement was only referring to “displeasure over the manner the police is interfering in the academic affairs of the University.”
“KUTA expressed deep concern and displeasure over the manner the police is interfering in the academic affairs of the University and defaming the teachers over flimsy grounds,” the handout said.
About the reference to the Pandora's Box, the KUTA said it “exclusively referred to ethical discourse”.
“While the KUTA demands that the University should be allowed to deal with academic matters on its own as it has already done so, it insists that the police should desist from uncalled for interference in the academics of the University which, we afraid, will open a Pandora's Box on the ethical discourse of the State.”
The KUTA further clarified that no Kashmir University teacher had been arrested by police.
