Pulwama aftermath: Police verification must for admission in varsities of U’khand

Admissions of students from others States, including Jammu and Kashmir, in the colleges of Uttarakhand would be done only after proper police verification. Following reports of tension in many colleges of the State where students of Jammu and Kashmir are studying after Pulwama attack on CRPF personnel, the State Government has convened a meeting of the vice- chancellors of the universities of the State and the directors of the private colleges. The Minister of State for higher education, Dhan Singh Rawat said while talking to The Pioneer that the VCs and directors would be asked to ensure that students of other States are admitted only on receipt of the verification report sent by the  authorities of the district the student hails from. This process would ensure that the students with dubious background are not given admission in the State, he said. The State Government is also planning to start counselling sessions for the students, he stated. The Minister, however, hastened to add that the students having commitment to the country would face no problem. As per estimation, over 10,000 students from Jammu and Kashmir are studying in different colleges and universities situated in Uttarakhand. Tension ran high in many of these institutes  following the Pulwama attack as the rightwing activists alleged that  some  of the Kashmiri students celebrated the attack.
