JAMMU: Authorities today dismissed as "false" reports that some Kashmiri students studying at two engineering colleges here were targeted by local students in protest against the incidents in NIT campus in Srinagar.

"Nobody was attacked in our college. It was just a few local students who yesterday unfurled the national flag and raised slogans like 'Bharat Mata ki Jai'. Then everything was normal and normal class work continued," Principal Government College of Engineering and Technology (GCET), Sameru Sharma said.

She said regular classes and sectional exams are being conducted and no exams have been cancelled or postponed. "The security of the college is tight enough to prevent the entry of any miscreant in the campus. The students are safe and secure in GCET campus," she said.

She said she also spoke to the principal of another engineering colleges and was informed that all Kashmiri students were safe and the reports that they were targeted were "false". Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Sunil Gupta said some people had spread the rumour of locals attacking the Kashmiri students.

"We inquired and found that it was just a rumour and nothing of this sort happened. We will identify the people who spread this rumour and deal with them as per law," the SSP said.
