Seeking cancellation of admissions of tainted candidates who allegedly bought papers to qualify CET 2012, hundreds of undergraduate students from Government Medical College Srinagar hit to streets on Saturday. The agitated male and female students set the sketch of former BOPEE Chairman Mushtaq Peer on fire and demanded that in order to restore the pride and glory of the College, tainted students should be expelled without any delay.
According to reports, hundreds of students gathered in the GMC premises and raised slogans against former BOPEE chairman Mushtaq Ahmed Peer, main accused in the paper-selling scam. The students marched peacefully towards Karan Nagar where police stopped them. The students returned back to the college premises amid anti-scam and anti-Mushtaq Peer slogans.
The protesting students were carrying the banners and placards depicting the slogans like, ‘Restore Pride, Expel Culprits’ ‘Kick The Backdoors Out’ ‘Hang Mushtaq Peer’.
President of Undergraduate Students Union, Faizan Yunus, said the protest of students would continue until government initiates action against the guilty. ‘Our reputation is at stake. We all are being looked as suspects and therefore the guilty should be ousted from the College so that all other students could breathe freely,” he said demanding that government should make public the list of candidates who have made it to the GMC through unfair means and action should be initiated against them to ensure that entire college doesn’t get a bad name.
