The students said they will continue with their protest till their demands are not met and will boycott the regular classes starting from Monday.

NSUI leaders joined the protesting students and said that they will continue supporting the protesting students till demands are met.

The MHRD and the college administration have turned a "complete deaf ear" to the primary demands of the students, one of the protesting students said.

They demanded permanent deployment of the CRPF with powers in the campus (not under state administration).

Besides this they also demanded reshuffling of college administration immediately and restructuring of NIT Srinagar administration by introducing cadre system.

Administration (both Teaching and Non-teaching staff) should consist of 50 per cent quota of J&K state personnel and 50 per cent quota from other states of India, the NIT students said.

The NIT students also demanded immediate formation of Student's Council on the lines of top NITs, IITs.

They also demanded an online Special Grievance Redressal Mechanism (SGRM) exclusively for NIT Srinagar directly monitored by the MHRD.

They also demanded action against JK Police and administration involved in the incident and action against those faculty members who are harassing students academically and hoisting of of tiranga (national flag) in institute campus.
