UDAIPUR: A Kashmiri student of a private college here was detained today for allegedly posting "anti-national" comments on social media site Facebook after the Uri terror attack, police said.

Mudasir Rashid, a Srinagar resident, has been suspended by his college, Techno India NJR Institute of Technology.

He has been detained for allegedly posting and sharing anti-national comments and material on Facebook, sub-inspector Hiran Magri police station Gordhan Ram said.

ABVP activists along with local students staged a protest at the college and demanded action against the accused.

They also damaged college property and hoisted the national flag atop a building, Ram added.

"Rashid has been suspended initially for seven days," said college director RS Vyas.

"He (Mudasir Rashid) allegedly started posting and sharing anti-national comments after the Uri terror attacks. This came to light after some students approached the college administration with print-outs of his posts. He was handed over to police," he said.

There are 15 Kashmiri students in the college and Rashid was one of them, Vyas added.

In March, four Kashmiri students were arrested for allegedly cooking beef in their hostel rooms at a Chittorgarh based private university.

The university saw clashes between locals and Kashmiri students after India lost to West Indies in a T-20 match in April.
