SRINAGAR, Sep 10: Days after Kashmiri students died in Bangladesh, Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Consultancy Association, Suhail Ahmad Khan on Saturday said that the colleges who have failed to ensure better facilities to the students will be blacklisted.
Addressing a news conference here, Khan, said that it is unfortunate that an MBBS student from Kashmir, who died in Bangladesh didn’t even get the ventilator when she was battling with her life.
“After her death, her body started decomposing as the authorities there didn’t provide a mortuary box till the body was sent home. It was only possible when the students from Kashmir there contributed from their own pocket and provided 50,000 dollars to ensure the body is kept in a mortuary box till it is sent to her home for last rites,” Khan said.
Furthermore, Khan said that the colleges in Bangladesh trap the students during admission and later push them to the wall. It has been now decided to blacklist all those colleges where the students from Kashmir are being pushed to the wall by not providing facilities to them, Khan said.
