Kashmiri student arrested in U'khand

 A Kashmiri student was arrested by police in Uttarakhand for allegedly sending a message to his friend of whatsapp.
Additional Director General of Police Ashok Kumar told PTI that one Kashmiri student, who had allegedly sent a message to his friends on WhatsApp expressing happiness over the militant attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama, has been arrested.
The student named Kaishar Rashid was arrested late on Saturday night and sent to jail, he said.
A case under Section 505(2) of the IPC had been registered against Rashid, SSP Nivedita Kukreti said.
ADGP said people are outraged across the country over the Pulwama attack and students from Jammu and Kashmir studying in Uttarakhand should not issue provocative statements on social media to add fuel to the fire.
Kumar said Kashmiri students have no reason to worry as police is there to ensure their complete safety.
On allegations of a section of Kashmiri girl students that they remained locked up for hours in a room as they were afraid about their safety, he said, "The matter had been blown out of proportion."
"They had shouted anti-India slogans when a candle march procession was being carried out by locals, triggering tension. However, police intervened immediately and the matter was resolved. But they blew up the matter while talking to a section of the press," he said.
On Saturday, Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik reviewed with senior officials the security of students from the state studying in universities and colleges across the country.
The officials informed Malik that liaison officers were coordinating with university authorities and the local police to ensure safety of the students.
