Police said on Tuesday that they have arrested twenty-two students who were protesting outside a college in Dehradun demanding the removal of Kashmiri students. On Monday, they got arrested outside the Uttaranchal College of Science and Technology on Sahastradhara Road for shouting slogans demanding the expulsion of Kashmiri students, said the SSP of Dehradun, Nivedita Kukreti.
The arrested protesters later got a release on bail.
Dehradun has witnessed a series of protests against Kashmiri students after the Pulwama terror attack. The authorities of Jammu and Kashmir are even worried about the safety of the Kashmiri students.
Two city colleges managements have even announced that they are not going to give further admission to the Kashmiri students in order to avoid any kind of harassment. Anil Saini, Chairman of Alpine College of Management and Technology one of the two colleges told the sources the announcement has been made under pressure but have not taken any such decisions.
Baba Farid Institute of Technology, which was the other city-based institution to give a similar commitment in writing, also claimed that they were compelled to make the announcement under pressure from a mob. Dehradun authorities have assured the safety of the Kashmiri students.
A Kashmiri student of Sridev Suman Subharti University was arrested for sending a WhatsApp message to his friends exulting over the terrorist attack on CRPF soldiers. A special helpline number has also been activated by the Jammu and Kashmir government with designated officers appointed to take care of the Kashmiri students in the city.
“There have been numerous calls from students of different colleges including Baba Farid Institute of Tech, Alpine Institute, Dolphin Institute, SBS Medical College and so on so forth,” a Jammu and Kashmir government spokesman said.
