Srinagar: Kashmir girl students are been harassed in a Himachal Pradesh college, a news agency reported on Friday.
Scores of Kashmir students pursuing education in Himaliyan Group of Professional Institute staged a massive protest inside the college premises demanding immediate rustication of those students allegedly involved in misbehaving with Kashmir girl students.
The Kashmir students alleged that scores of students from Himachal and Haryana beat them up and misbehaved with female students while college authorities did not take any action against them.
The students told the news agency over phone, that it has become a common sight for us that students from Haryana and Himachal tease and harass Kashmir female students.
They said that a day before when some of the Kashmir students resisted and resented their action, they in league with other outside state students beat them mercilessly.
“We all Kashmir students, about 250 in number, boycotted our classes and the boycott will continue till action is not taken against the ‘goons’,” the students said.
The chairman of the college, Rajesh Bhansal, told the news agency that they expelled at least four students who were found guilty. “It is not a serious issue. During a sports meet, a Kashmir and a student from Haryana came to blows with each other and the other students joined the fray. We have settled the issue and four students have been rusticated,” he said.
Bhansal termed the allegations ‘baseless’ that girl students are being harassed or teased
