Parents of outstation NIT students hold protest VHP seeks FIR against cops

JAMMU: As the protest continued by the students of NIT Srinagar, parents of the wards on Friday again assembled at Press Club Jammu to highlight the situation erupted there at the NIT Campus and to restrain any such further happening demanding thereby either shifting of NIT Campus from Srinagar to some safer place or shifting their wards to other NIT Campuses. They pressed to take immediate action against the culprits (police authorities) who have beaten brutally the students causing thereby head injuries and fractures to them. They strongly condemned the action of JKP and further registering of FIR against the students evidencing thereby self manipulated videos.

CM is not feeling secure there at Srinagar then what about the students who are facing threats from the very beginning of disturbance?” They said.
