A group of Kashmiri students studying in Swami Dev Dyal Group of Institute in Indian state of Haryana has said that the college administration has harassed them.
According to media sources, Amir Butt, a 6th semester B.Tech student, told media men in Srinagar over phone that he was harassed by the HoD, Shuti Kanth Sharma, of Civil Department of the college in which he is enrolled. “I went to get my admit card for the ongoing examination in the college on Tuesday morning. When I reached the campus, they did not give me the admit card,” he said. “The HoD came, shouted, harassed and used derogatory words,” he added. Amir Butt said that he was ill and had fulfilled all the formalities in the college to appear in the examination of 6th semester. “There is a norm in the college that if a student has zero percent attendance he can pay fine and take part in the examination.” “I cleared examination, hostel, and library charges but I fail to understand why I was not given admit card,” said the student. The institute is located in Barwalla in Panchkala district of Haryana. Another student, Shoib from Pulwama who is pursing B.Tech, said that it was not for the first time they were facing harassment at the hands of college administration. “There are a lot of heart-wrenching stories with us,” he said. He also said that five days ago the college administration canceled admission of around 50 students including five students from Kashmir due to unknown reasons. “They were admitted fraudulently and were given fraud admit cards to appear in the examination. But when the results were declared their names were nowhere,” he added.
