150 Kashmiri students ‘expelled’ from Indian hostels after ‘Indo-Pak cricket clash’

Srinagar, Mar 3: Around 150 students pursuing different courses at Swami Vivekanand Subharti University Meerut have been reportedly expelled from their hostels after students clashed with Kashmiris at the end of the Indo-Pak cricket match yesterday.
 According to their parents who rang up Greater Kashmir this afternoon, the students were ferried in vehicles to Ghaziabad on Monday “wherein they are asked to go back to Jammu and Kashmir or New Delhi.”
 While giving details, a brother of a student pursuing Masters at the university said, “during the match when India was winning, some students hooted at Kashmiri students and when Pakistan won the match, there were cries of joy from Kashmiri students.”
 “After the match ended, some non-Kashmiri students barged into the hostel of Kashmiri students. They broke furniture, windows and thrashed some Kashmiri students too,” said a parent of another student. “There was a big confrontation and in the morning Vice Chancellor brought police into the campus.”
 The parents of these students said their wards were “dragged from their hostels and bundled into vehicles escorted by the police.’ “They have been taken to Ghaziabad. They don’t have any money with them,” said a parent. “Now there are reports that Kashmiri girl students are also being thrown out of the university.”
 The parents slammed the government for “falsely advertising a helpline that doesn’t respond.”
 “We called the liason officer for Kashmiri students in New Delhi number of times on both of his numbers, but he didn’t bother to pick up the phone,” said an aggrieved parent. “Why does government falsely advertise such numbers when it is useless?”
 Almost all students have been selected to the university under the Prime Ministers’ Special Scholarship Scheme. They are pursing various degrees in engineering, BBA, Law, BDS and other courses.
 Despite repeated attempts, no official from the University was available to comment on the issue.
