In a letter addressed to Singh, Mir has expressed serious concern over the harassment of innocent students as reported, who are studying in different colleges and educational Institutions in Punjab.

He emphasized that there must not be any kind of harassment to the students as that will affect their studies very badly and force them to return to their homes.

He also sought action against those found involved in intimidating innocent student from J&K.

Mir in his letter also said that due to the deteriorating situation in Kashmir valley hundreds of students have preferred to study in neighboring states especially in Punjab to secure their future, but the harassment and unnecessary questioning will ruin their future.

The JKPCC chief emphasized that students need to be provided peaceful and secure atmosphere both in and outside educational institutions.

The students need to be encouraged to carry on with their studies, Mir said in a letter and added that Punjab Government must take measure to put an end to the harassment of students from J&K.
