SRINAGAR: Families of seven SKUAST-K students who were booked under the UAPA have voiced their concerns about political activists and leaders politicising the issue.
They stated in a joint statement that stirring up controversy around the matter while it’s still under investigation could do more harm than good.
The statement reads that families have represented to Lt Governor for withdrawal of the case.
Earlier, in the aftermath of the arrest of the students had approached the university authorities, seeking help in their release.
The statement reads that SSP Ganderbal also was briefed over their version of the episode and they were expecting judicious disposal of the case. ”It looks that some quarters are trying to thrive on the miseries of innocent victims, which should be avoided and appealed to administration and authorities to withdraw the case.”
They expressed hope that the arrested students will be treated with compassion and that justice will be done without getting any one to any harm.
It may be noted that the students, who had filed the complaint, wanted the case be withdrawn and students be released—(KNO)
