The HRD Ministry is expected to send a two-member fact-finding team to the NIT Srinagar campus which has been gripped by tension following clashes among students over the Indian cricket team’s loss against West Indies in the T20 World Cup last week.

On Friday, the NIT suspended class work and ordered evacuation of hostels following the clash between Kashmiri and non-Kashmiri students.

“The Ministry has decided to send a two-member team comprising a Director and a Deputy Secretary-rank officer, who will listen to the students there,” a senior official said.

With the situation being tense, the CRPF was deployed on the campus and the Jammu and Kashmir government has assured full security to other States students.
