"We have instituted an inquiry to go into the incidents at the NIT," Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh told reporters here.

He said Additional District Magistrate of Srinagar will conduct the inquiry and submit his report within 15 days.

"We will resolve this issue at the earliest," Singh said.

Asked about his comment that students were subjected to 'mild lathicharge', Singh said his statement at that time was based on information he had received.

He said the state government will ensure the personal as well as academic security of the students at the NIT.
