MHA issues advisory to states amid reports of Kashmir students feeling apprehensive

Amid possibility that Kashmiri students studying across the country may face hardship in wake of dastardly Pulwama terror attack, the Ministry of Home Affairs

issued an advisory to all states and Union Territories to take necessary measures and ensure the safety of students and residents of Jammu and Kashmir.

According to MHA officials, there have been some reports of students and other residents of Jammu and Kashmir experiencing threats and intimidation in light of Pulwama attack.

It need be mentioned that Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh earlier held an all-party meeting to review the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir and to chalk out the future course of action to tackle terrorism.

During the meeting, the home minister assured protection to the Kashmiri students and people who were allegedly threatened after the terrorist attack.

Rajnath Singh also directed the officials to take all possible steps to hunt down terrorists currently operating in Kashmir valley.

Some Kashmiri students were allegedly harassed and asked to vacate accommodations by their landlords in Uttarakhand’s Dehradun fearing attacks on their properties in the wake of the Pulwama attack, according to news agency reports.

On Thursday, at least 40 security personnel lost their lives and several others were injured after a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist rammed an explosive-laden car into a CRPF convoy in Awantipora of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
