CHIDAMBARAM ASSURES PROBE
Harassment of Kashmiri students
Srinagar, July 22: Union Home Minister, P Chidambaram, has said that the matter of alleged harassment of Kashmiri students in Haryana is being inquired.
“I have received your letter dated 2-7-2012 regarding harassment of Kashmiri boys studying in Swami Devi Dayal Institute of Engineering and Technology Panchkula Haryana. I am getting the matter looked into and will get back to you soon,” Chidambram wrote to Member Parliament from south Kashmir, Dr Mehbooba Beg in response to his letter.
With ‘assault’ on Kashmiri students in Haryana last month evoking widespread resentment in Kashmir, Dr Mehboob Beg had written a letter to the Home Minister seeking his intervention in the matter.
In the letter, Dr Beg has urged Chidambaram to intervene in the matter to save the career of the students undergoing study in the College, who were allegedly roughed up by some hooligans there last week.
“Kashmiri boys - fourteen in number to be precise - enrolled and studying in Swami Devidayal Institute of Engineering and Technology (professional) district Panchkula, Haryana were harassed there on June 29, 2012. Some miscreants barged into the hostel and physically assaulted them resulting in injuries to three of them. One of them Nazar Muhammad Rather is from my constituency, Islamabad (Anantnag),”
the letter reads
“The injured were taken to hospital for treatment, which was denied as they were told it was a police case. So they went to the police station where the officials present refused to register the FIR. Now, the students are so scared that they are thinking of winding up, which would be really unfortunate. Sir, your intervention can save the situation and agony,” it further states.
