Jalandhar: Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Suresh Arora Sunday said the state police never questions the integrity of students, especially those from Kashmir.
His remarks came after media reports claimed Kashmiri students of a number of colleges in Punjab have started returning home fearing harassment following the arrest of three college youths from the valley for allegedly possessing an AK-47 rifle and other weapons.
Arora said, “It’s our moral duty to ensure students from all part of the country have access to quality education. However, action will be taken if any citizen violates the law.”
The DGP said he has already directed district police chiefs to have detailed interactions with students and assure them of help in difficult situations.
He said Additional Director General of Police (Community Policing) Ishwar Singh and Inspector General of Police V Neerja have been appointed as nodal officers to redress their grievances, if any.
