Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday assured full security to NIT students in Srinagar, saying they should not worry about their safety in the wake of clashes between two groups after the India-West Indies cricket match on Thursday.

Mr. Singh called up Jammu and Kashmir Governor N. N. Vohra and Director General of Police (DGP) K. Rajendra Kumar and asked them to ensure proper security to the students.

“I assure the students that they should not worry about their security. I have spoken to the Governor and the DGP regarding the situation. I have instructed the DGP to send a team of officers to NIT, Srinagar, to assure the students of their safety and security,” he said here.

The Home Minister’s statement came after clashes occurred at NIT, Srinagar, following team India’s defeat against West Indies in the World Cup T20 semi-final.- PTI
