As the talks between agitating outstation students and the Jammu and Kashmir government and the National Institute of Technology (NIT) administration on Friday evening yielded “positive results”, the debate about nationalism seems to have antagonised the police officers.

The Union Home Ministry’s insistence on deploying the CRPF on the NIT campus after the police clashed with students on Tuesday night, which left several injured, has displeased the police.

Reports of accusations by students and parents about local police working “at the behest of anti-nationals” saw the State’s senior police officers taking to WhatsApp groups and Facebook to vent their disagreement.

“This is just another phase and [it] will pass. Further, J&K police doesn’t need any certificate from people. We must continue doing the good work within the ambit of the law and nothing shall deter us,” wrote DSP, Baramullah, Feroz Yehya.
