Dismissing reports of ‘clashes’ at a college in Meerut following nail biting Indo-Pak cricket match, scores of parents whose children are pursuing different courses at Swami Vivekanand Subharti University Meerut Tuesday refuted the news item carried in section of press regarding the thrashing of Kashmiri students throwing them out of Varsity at the end of the matchon Sunday night.

According to CNS, the parents assembled at Press Enclave and told reporters that Kashmiri students were ‘advised’ to spend some days outside the Varsity till ‘the matter is resolved amicably’.

“They were neither thrashed nor were expelled. Actually the administration of Subharti University had taken timely step to avoid any untoward incident which may have otherwise occurred,” one of parents from Bandipora whose son pursues MCA in the said University said.

They further said that University administration provided security to the Kashmiri students on their way to Ghaziabad. “All the students have returned to the Varsity and the issue has been resolved amicably,” they said adding that only 73 Kashmiri students are pursuing different courses in the said University.
