Bareilly: Three Kashmiri girl students of the Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IVRI) have been booked for allegedly forwarding controversial comments, along with their own remarks, against the Indian Army on an instant messaging app following the Pulwama terror strike, police said here on Saturday.
According to an official, after the deadly Pulwama attack on February 14, these girls allegedly made some adverse and objectionable comments on a WhatsApp group in which other students were also members.
IVRI Director R K Singh said after the matter came to light, the institute conducted a probe, following which the fellowship and scholarship of two students were blocked while the name of the third, who had enrolled for masters degree and was absent since December, 2018, was struck off.
Senior Superintendent of Police Muniraj said on the complaint of the VHP's mahanagar unit vice president Amit Sharma, a case was filed against the three students at the Izzatnagar police station on Friday evening.
