Due to the paramilitary deployment, NIT-Srinagar is the most militarized institution in the country. It should be noted here that when anti-national cries reverberated through the JNU campus in New Delhi, calls for deploying the army were made but was not done.

On Wednesday evening the students were able to present their grievances and video evidences of the police high-handedness to the two-member HRD team.
On Thursday, the seventh day of the NIT row, students continued their boycott of classes and pressed forth with their demand of the shifting of NIT from Srinagar.
The students had thanked the CRPF for providing security to them. The J&K police had vacated the campus upon CRPF’s deployment. The police has been accused of taking away the tricolour from the pro-India students.
