Srinagar, Apr 4: J&K Students Association Saturday demanded that Kashmiri students who returned from Iran, Bangladesh, and Pakistan and had completed their 28 days and 18 days quarantine period should be brought home at an earliest.

In a statement, the association spokesperson urged Home Minister Amit Shah and LG GC Murmu to take immediate measures and make special arrangements for safe evacuation of Kashmiri students stranded in Rajasthan and Punjab State who had completed their mandatory quarantine time.

The spokesperson said hundreds of students in different states of the country are facing hardships due to lockdown.

“In these two states the students who were sent to quarantine centres have completed their mandatory time and now they should be evacuated to their respective homes,” he said.

“In Punjab, students, includes girls, despite completing 14 days of quarantine period and testing negative continue to remain in the centre without any logic. Their co-passengers, from different states, have all gone home after completing their quarantine period,” he added.

The spokesperson asked: “If students from other states have reached home, why is there a different treatment towards the Kashmiri students?”
