“Officials from Punjab Chief Minister’s office informed me about the incident involving a brutal physical assault on Kashmiri students on Monday,” the Jammu and Kashmir Students Association, Spokesperson, Nasir Khuehami, told Free Press Kashmir. 

He said, “I had subsequently requested the officials for swift action against culprits besides ensuring the safety of Kashmiri students”.
