Delhi seminar participants allege harassment
Srinagar, Nov 7: While the Delhi High Court has asked the Delhi government to reply to a petition filed by some Kashmiri Pandits, seeking action against those who spoke at “Azadi: the only way” seminar recently, some Kashmiri students who attended the seminar are being harassed by Delhi police and unknown callers.
“A caller asked me to come to Jamia police station as they wanted to question me in connection with the seminar. They have done it earlier too,” a student at Jamia Millia Islamia, wishing anonymity, told Greater Kashmir over phone. A few intelligence officials had also visited the student’s home in Srinagar, seeking details about him.
Another Delhi university student who was at the seminar alleged the task of harassment is usually assigned to right wing student unions, who then harass the students in myriad ways.
“I was not at the seminar, but everybody seems to be suspect. There is no freedom of speech,” said a DU student.
