Beg writes to Chidambaram
ASSAULT ON KASHMIRI STUDENTS
Srinagar, July 2: With ‘assault’ on Kashmiri students in Haryana evoking widespread resentment in Kashmir, Member Parliament Dr Mehboob Beg has written a letter to the Union Home Minister P Chidambaram seeking his intervention in the matter.
In a letter, a copy of which is with Greater Kashmir, Dr Beg has urged Chidambaram to intervene in the matter to save the career of the students undergoing study at Swami Devidayal Institute of Engineering and Technology (professional) district Panchkula, Haryana, 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 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,” the letter reads.
After Greater Kashmir reported that Kashmiri students were assaulted in Haryana, the J&K Government deputed an officer of SP level to inquire into the matter.
