Six Kashmiri students enrolled at the Mewar University in Chittorgarh district of Rajasthan were allegedly thrashed by locals on Wednesday.

Condemning the attack on Kashmiri students in Rajasthan's Mewar University, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday appealed to all state governments to ensure safety of Kashmiris. I appeal to all the Chief Ministers to ensure that no Kashmiri youth is mistreated in any part of the nation.

Dubbing the incidents as "unfortunate" the Home Minister said he had come to know that Kashmiris were subjected to "misbehaviour" in some places. His reaction came in the backdrop of widespread hostility against people from the Valley who are living in different states in the country. They hurled abuses, called us terrorists and said we throw stones at the Army.
