Unrest was witnessed at NIT Srinagar on Tuesday, the scene of last week’s clash, with outstation students expressing a sense of insecurity attempted to leave the campus, leading to a confrontation with the policemen who resorted to a lathicharge.

Some of the students were injured in the incident.

With the situation being tense, the CRPF was deployed later on Tuesday night on the campus and Jammu and Kashmir government assured full security to the students from other states studying here.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh also called up Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and discussed with her the situation at the NIT.
