Even as J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday spoke to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan about a student from Jammu & Kashmir being shot at in Ujjain,parents of students studying in Madhya Pradesh expressed concern over the incident.

“Spoke to the CM of MP about the Ujjain shooting of Kashmiri youth. He assured guilty will be punished and other Kashmiri boys’ safety also,” Omar said on Twitter.

On Saturday,Shabir Ahmed of Baramulla in north Kashmir was critically injured after he was shot at by two unidentified persons near a bus stop in Ujjain. The 27-year-old is doing his MPhil in English from Ujjain’s Vikram University.

Hundreds of Kashmiri students are studying in MP,with 80 in Ujjain alone.

After the incident,parents of Kashmiri students have expressed their worries about safety of their wards. Parents of some students have alleged that the MP Police have asked their kin to get their credentials verified by the J&K Police.

Mohammad Yousuf Shah of Kulgam said his son told him the MP Police often visit their rented accommodations,which hampers their studies. He said the government should take up the issue with the Centre.

Last year,Kashmiri student Kaiser Ahmed Dar,who was studying at MP’s Sagar University,was detained by the anti-terrorist squad in Bhopal and was released only after the J-K government intervened.
