KSU stops classes in ICFAI Shillong

SHILLONG, Aug 28: The Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) on Wednesday stopped classes in the Shillong campus of ICFAI in protest against the alleged manhandling of students from other parts of northeast in Kamalghat, Tripura.

It may be mentioned that there are reports that on Monday night in ICFAI Tripura, a girl from Manipur was allegedly misbehaved with by a local student.

Which later turned into an issue with students hailing from Manipur assembling at the spot and the accused was beaten up.

Later on Tuesday morning, a group of local students gathered near the hostel and broke the entry door. They also laid a siege in front of the administrative building.

After, the girl students from other parts of northeast were locked inside their hostel by the administration of ICFAI.

There are around 14 students from Meghalaya studying in ICFAI Tripura which includes six girls and eight boys.

Meanwhile, Meghalaya police has informed that it is coordinating with its counterpart in Tripura to ensure the safety of the students from here.

Assistant Inspector General of Police GK Iangrai informed that after receiving information that students hailing from the state are perceiving fear of being attacked in the wake of the clashes, Meghalaya Director General of Police, R Chandranathan spoke to his Tripura counterpart.

“He was ensured that the students will not be affected by any untoward or unforeseen incidents, and that their security will be enhanced,” Iangrai said.

The Meghalaya police have also informed that if any immediate assistance is required the students or their family members can contact the following phone numbers – 9436337946 and 6033090114.

Moreover, KSU general secretary, Donald Thabah told reporters that when the KSU contacted the administration in Tripura they denied that there were any such clashes.

“The students want to come back because they don’t feel secure. But there is no help for them,” Thabah said.

The KSU general secretary also said that they stopped the functioning of the ICFAI in Shillong since the sponsoring body is the same.

He also urged the sponsoring body to take initiative to calm the nerves of the students from outside Tripura in the campus.

Thabah alleged that the students are being intimidated and they were asked to apologise when they did no wrong.

Later in the evening, the parents of the students who are still stranded in Tripura met Chief Minister, Conrad K Sangma and Urban Affairs Minister Hamletson Dohling to ensure their safety.

  1. Since 90s KSU is disturbing progressive movement of any nature, they indulge in unsocial elements, beat up youth from other sections of society, manipulate things into issues. They’re dumb and do not understand the consequences. When NRC related news were at peak last year, these idiots blocked the entry of vehicles coming from Guwahati ….. Comedians of the highest degree!

  2. It should be like this to the students from meghalaya because when we outsider come to study here in Shillong then the behaviour of KHASI people are so uncivilized….
    I wanna ask one thing from everyone that is this the way to treat anyone who comes from outside..
    And what does that DKHAR means…
