Behaviour Of Lawyers In Agra Towards Kashmiri Students Unacceptable, Says Omar

SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference (NC) Vice President Omar Abdullah on Friday said the behaviour of lawyers in Agra towards three Kashmiri students, arrested for allegedly celebrating Pakistan’s win in T20 World Cup, was unacceptable.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Omar Abdullah wrote: “The behaviour of the lawyers is unacceptable & the role of the police is deeply suspect. With polls around the corner rather than make friends with Kashmiri students the powers that be are happier using them as political cannon fodder.”

“The college authorities have given these students a clean chit & confirmed they didn’t shout any slogans. Rather than take the college assurance at face value the UP police is victimising these poor kids,” Omar tweeted.

Omar was reacting over attack on Kashmiri students while they were coming out of the court in Agra on Thursday.
