‘NIT Chalo’ March Starts From Delhi; Amnesty Calls For Impartial Probe Into Police Action

Published on 9 April, 2016 at 6:27 pm By

Around 150 youth, including students from 12 states, have reportedly set off from Delhi for the NIT-Srinagar campus to support the pro-India students who are agitating there against a biased administration and brutal police action.

The youth are making the 850 km journey in two buses, seven cars, and bikes.

Dubbed ‘NIT Chalo’, the aim of this march is to reinforce the students at NIT-Srinagar with tricolour. It is being led by Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena’s head Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga.

 

NIT-Srinagar students had alleged that the tricolour they hoisted on April 1 in the campus was taken away from them by the J&K police.

Here in Delhi, the ‘NIT Chalo’ brigade said that they stand united in protest against the police action and the anti-India slogans raised in the campus on the night of March 31, which led to the NIT row.

In a press statement, Bagga said that they want to prove to those against the non-Kashmiri students that hoisting the tricolour is not a crime.



Reports say that others will join this march as it passes through cities of Punjab and Haryana.

 

Amnesty calls for action

The Amnesty International has now demanded a criminal investigation into the police action on the non-Kashmiri students in the institute.

HRD rejects demand

The HRD ministry has rejected the demand for the shifting of the campus from Srinagar but has assured the aggrieved students that issues such as better facilities and improving academic atmosphere will be addressed.
