After JNU Row, J&K Students Come Under Scanner Of Kolkata Police

Published on 15 March, 2016 at 1:38 pm By

The Kolkata police has asked all colleges in the city to give details of their students who are from Jammu and Kashmir.

This has come in the wake of student protests at Jadavpur University against the arrest of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students on sedition charges.

According to The Indian Express, a note from the police copy addressed to the principal of the college, reads:

 “Please let me know that students, whose residential addresses is under the State of Jammu & Kashmir, studies in your Institution for onwards transmission to the Ministry of Home Affairs, North Block, New Delhi, Govt. of India.”

 

The copy was sent out to colleges in the last week of February when students were protesting both at JNU and at Jadavpur University.

It was signed by the police officer in charge of intelligence at the police station in which the college falls.

Joint Commissioner of Police (Intelligence) Pallav Kanti Ghosh, when asked about the survey, said that the information about the note is “authentic.”

However, according to senior officers, the request for these details had come from Central intelligence agencies which asked Special Branch of Kolkata police to get the details.
