Srinagar: Most of the non-Kashmiri students at the National Institute of Technology (NIT) skipped the examinations and left for their homes for 10 days on Monday.
Following the stir, non-Kashmiri students had been given the option of writing their examinations later. Local students, however, appeared in the examination that started on Monday.
“Examination was held as per schedule. Local students along with a few non-locals appeared in the examination,” registrar FA Mir told Kashmir Reader.
“About 1100 non-local students had applied for permission to go home,” Mir said.
Kashmiri students had celebrated India’s loss to West Indies in World Cup T20 semi-final on March 31. Next day, non-Kashmiri students went on rampage and beat up Kashmiri students, who are in minority, a courier and a faculty member. They then demanded, among other things, that the tricolor should be permanently hoisted on the main gate of the campus.
