CRICKET ROW: Barring few, Meerut varsity willing to readmit expelled students, says Matoo

SRINAGAR: National Conference youth leader Junaid Azim Matoo, who was sent to  Meerut by  Chief Minister Omar Abdullah after 67 Kashmir students were expelled  from Swami Vivekananda Subharti University for cheering Pakistan against India in a cricket match, Friday  said that barring couple of students the university is ready to readmit all the students.
He said that he was shown proof that few Kashmiri students were involved in hooliganism.
“But,we are trying to make it sure that all the 67 students are readmitted to  the Universtiy,” Matoo was quoted as saying by  Srinagar-based news agency CNS.
He further said  that there was a particular woman  who was trying to mislead these students for her personal benefits.
“The University authorities told me that they have no legal complaints against these students. They said that barring couple of students, they are willing to re-admit all the students. I was shown proof, how few Kashmiri students were involved in hooliganism, but I don’t want to go into that. We are  trying
our best that all the 67 Kashmiri students be re-admitted in the University,” he said.
Matoo said at a time when Government has resolved the issue amicably, a particular woman  who  runs an NGO is misleading some students for her personal benefits and she had yesterday called five students who later on issued a statement that they are not ready to join the University.
“It is very unfortunate and these students must think about their future and should join the University,” he said adding that within a month all the students will hopefully be readmitted in the Varsity.
