Students assault: Opposition stages walkout from J&K Assembly
Jammu: The opposition MLAs on Thursday created a ruckus and staged a walkout from the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly over the issue of alleged assault of a Kashmiri Muslim student in Haryana.
As the House began proceedings this morning, CPI(M) MLA M Y Tarigami and NC MLA Ali Mohammed Sagar raised the issue and demanded a reply from the state government. "This is happening repeatedly now and then with the Kashmiri students. They are being beaten despite assurances by the government. They have failed to stop the assaults," Sagar said.
The members of the NC, the Congress and the CPI(M) stood up and started protesting, asking the government to ensure the students' safety.
