‘Students, who had filed the complaint, wanted the case be withdrawn and students be released’

Srinagar: Families of seven SKUAST-K students booked under UAPA have expressed concern over what they termed as politicisation of the issue by some leaders and activists.

In a joint statement by them, they have said that raking up controversies on the issue pending investigation might bring innocents to harm than any relief.

The statement reads that families have represented to Lt Governor for withdrawal of the case.

Earlier, in the aftermath of the arrest of the boys, they had approached the university authorities, seeking help in their release.

Families said SSP Ganderbal also was briefed over their version of the episode and they were expecting judicious disposal of the case.

They said that 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.

Families expressed gratitude for the solidarity being shown by co-students of the SKUAST including those from outside Jammu and Kashmir.

It may be noted that the students, who had filed the complaint, wanted the case be withdrawn and students be released.
