Kashmiri boys arrested in Dehradun
Srinagar, Feb 12: More than a dozen Kashmiri students studying in Dehradun were arrested by police Tuesday morning, sources said.
They said the students were arrested when they were going to offer funeral prayers in absentia for Muhammad Afzal Guru.
“The arrests have created panic among the student community here,” students from Dehradun told Greater Kashmir. “We had gone to police stations to seek their release, but the police here is on arrest spree,” they said.
The students who have been arrested are studying in different colleges. “We patched up through Facebook for funeral in absentia prayers,” they said.
The students have appealed J&K government for relief. “We appeal the J&K government to get these students released,” they said and added that they fear in trekking away to colleges.
Meanwhile, the parents of several youth, who are studying in other states of the country, have expressed their concern over the safety of their wards. “We are getting calls from our wards that they are being harassed by the police in other states,” they said.
