Over a hundred Kashmiri students are admitted in St. Soldier Management and Technical Institution located at Jalandhar Punjab. They expressed anguish over the abduction of their class mate.
“We were sleeping at our rented room at Gagan Vihar Mithu Basti when suddenly a group of men brandishing pistols barged into our room and dragged our class fellow Adil Hussain Teli out. They didn’t allow us to speak a word as we were so frightened after they displayed pistols,” said one of the Kashmiri students from Punjab to news agency CNS over phone.
The student almost broke down on phone and requested to bring the matter into the notice of Jammu Kashmir Police.

When contacted the Principal refused to talk on the issue. “The Principal can talk to you only on Monday,” said one of the teachers of the Institute.
