Bareilly: The Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IVRI) in Uttar Pradesh's Bareilly has taken action against three Kashmiri girls for allegedly posting adverse remarks against the Indian Army on social media, a senior official said on Thursday.
After the deadly Pulwama terror attack on 14 February, which killed 42 CRPF personnel, these girls allegedly made some adverse and objectionable comments on a Whatsapp group in which other students were also members, the official said. After the matter came to light, the institute conducted a probe and action was taken thereafter.
"The action against the three Kashmiri girl students was taken on Wednesday after a probe and local intelligence report. While fellowship of two girls has been stopped, admission of one other has been cancelled," Registrar, IVRI, Rakesh Kumar said.
He said the two students, whose fellowship was stopped, have been warned not to indulge in any such activities in the future failing which they will be expelled.
Seven Kashmiri students were earlier this week suspended by Roorkee-based Quantum Global University for their alleged anti-national posts on social media.
