Ind-Pak match: Agra police arrests three Kashmiri students


Three Kashmiri students in Agra, who were booked for posting on social media in favour of Pakistan cricket team in the T20 World Cup Match, have been arrested by police on Wednesday.

The students are from engineering college in Uttar Pradesh Agra and were identified as Arshid Yusuf, Inayat Altaf Sheikh and Showkat Ahmed.

Nasir Kheuhami, national spokesperson of Jammu and Kashmir Students Association told The Kashmir Walla, “They were arrested. A batchmate who was with them informed me that they have been arrested by the police.”

He added that police is not sharing First Information Report (FIR) details. “[There is a] sense of fear among other students living in the area,” he said.

On Tuesday, the students were suspended by the college and booked by police in Agra for allegedly raising pro-Pakistan slogans and uploading status in favour of Pakistan after the match.

On Sunday night, at least 14 Kashmiri students were thrashed in different cities and 7 of them sustained injuries after Pakistan’s victory in the T-20 World Cup match against the Indian team.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
