Four female paramedical students of Kashmiri-origin were suspended from a private institute in Jaipur and later booked for allegedly celebrating the Pulwama terror attack by posting “anti-national” messages on an instant messaging app, officials said on Sunday.

The second-year students of the National Institute of Medical Science (NIMS), were suspended for posting on WhatsApp a picture in which they were purportedly seen celebrating the terrorist attack in Kashmir that claimed the lives of 40 CRPF personnel.
The picture soon went viral, prompting the university administration to take action.
In the suspension order, the NIMS registrar said,”You have posted an anti-national message on your WhatsApp for celebrating killing of Pulwama terrorist attack martyrs. The university will not tolerate and strictly condemns such activities. The act is grave and serious in nature.”
Later, a case was registered against the four students following a complaint by the university administration, a police official said.
The students were booked under relevant provisions of the Information Technology (IT) Act. Senior officials are investigating the matter and appropriate action will be taken thereafter, SP (Rural) Harendra Kumar said.
The Aligarh Muslim University has also suspended an undergraduate Kashmiri student for his alleged objectionable tweet in connection with the Pulwama attack.
Meanwhile, a court in Himachal Pradesh’s Kasauli on Sunday sent an engineering student from Kashmir to a 14 days judicial custody for allegedly posting a comment “glorifying” the Pulwama terror attack that left 49 CRPF troopers dead, police said.
Tahseen Gul, a B.Tech student of Chitkara University in Baddi in Solan district, was arrested on Saturday for posting the comment and a picture of suicide bomber Adil Ahmad Dar as his WhatsApp profile photo, police said.
His arrest came on a complaint from the university after other students informed varsity officials about the comment. Gul was booked under Section 153B (Imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration) of the Indian Penal Code.
Police had also detained five other Kashmiri students but they were released later.
