‘Cheering for Pakistan’ ghost returns
2 more Kashmiri students expelled from Meerut varsity
After expelling 10 Kashmiri students in March this year for allegedly cheering for the Pakistan cricket team, Swami Vivekanand Subharti University Meerut has suspended two more Kashmiri students whose names according to their parents never figured in the controversy that time.
In March this year, at least 67 Kashmiri students were expelled from Swami Vivekanand Subharti University for allegedly cheering for Pakistan cricket team. After the intervention of the state government, the varsity revoked suspension of 57 students while the fate of remaining 10 students was decided by Disciplinary Committee which after finding them ‘guilty’ expelled them from the University.
“Three days back I received a letter from the Swami Vivekanand Subharti University authorities in which I was asked to take my son back as they have suspended him from the University,” father of a Baramulla student Sheikh Ashfaq said.
The student, pursuing BBA course told CNS from Meerut over phone that his career is ruined and no college will provide him admission at this time. “The University authorities accuse me of appearing before media in the midst of controversy,” he said.
On the same charges the University has expelled another student Jehangir Ahmed from Kreeri Pattan who was also pursuing BBA course.
Confirming the suspension of two more students, a University official said that these students tried to malign the image of University in media. (CNS)
