Hoardings calling for Kashmiris to leave Uttar Pradesh have turned up in Meerut.

Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Friday that all states should ensure safety of Kashmiri students living in the country.

Quoting sources the report said that the Army invited Oman's Defence General Secretary Mohammed Bin Naseer to visit the Northern Command in Kashmir recently.

Meanwhile, the Uttar Pradesh Police has filed a case against the leader of the Uttar Pradesh Nav Nirman Sena on charges of inciting communal disharmony.

Amit Jani, chief of the outfit, said that they will launch a "halla bol" campaign from 30 April to "banish" Kashmiris who do not leave the state on their own.

Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir): Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Thursday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government by banning the use of red beacon on vehicles attached to dignitaries has sent out a clear message that leaders are the servants of people.

Six Kashmiri students studying at Mewar University were beaten up by some locals in Chittorgarh district. No one was seriously injured in the incident. The attacks seemed coordinated.

However, according to the TOI report, the FIR lodged by these students does not say anything about the "stone-pelter" taunt because they do not want the issue to flare-up as it's exam time for them.

There are almost 500 Kashmiri students and 300 from Jammu at Mewar University.

The students were also upset with the university authorities for not being able to protect them.
