On February 16, Jadavpur University witnessed protests condemning the central government and the Delhi Police’s handling of the JNU row. Reports emerged of ‘Pro-Afzal’ and ‘Pro-separatist’ slogans being raised inside the Jadavpur University campus.
In light of this incident, the Kolkata police is reportedly asking all colleges in the city to provide details of all the students who hail from Jammu and Kashmir in a bid to ‘monitor their activities’, reports Indian Express.
A copy of the police order was obtained by The Indian Express. The note is addressed to the principal of the college and reads:
“Please let me know that students, whose residential addresses is under the State of Jammu & Kashmir, studies in your Institution for onwards transmission to the Ministry of Home Affairs, North Block, New Delhi, Govt. of India.”
Colleges in the city of Kolkata received this letter in the last week of February.
Former J&K Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah took to twitter to express concern over this report.
