J&K: This is evident from a BSF Assistant Commandant’s letter to the Women and Child Development minister Maneka Gandhi in which he requested her to ensure that his sister living in a Chandigarh engineering college hostel is not asked leave the hostel.
Nabeel Ahmed Wani, who topped the BSF’s (Border Security Force) entrance exam in Jammu and Kashmir, said the request was in the wake of security threat that officers like him and their families members are facing from terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.
Wani while saying that he was always in news for supporting forces against terrorism termed the issue raised by him as a matter of emergency and national integrity.
The BSF Constable’s sister and other students were asked by the college authority to vacate their hostel.
In his letter addressed to Maneka Gandhi, he said that it would be risky for her sister’s life if she comes back to Kashmir in the present situation.
In response to Nabeel Ahmed Wani’s letter, the Women and Child Development ministry asked the college to accommodate his sister in the hostel.
In a tweet, the ministry has confirmed that Nabeel Ahmed Wani’s sister has been allowed to stay back.
Wani’s letter has come days after an Army officer Umer Fayaz was killed by the terrorists in Kashmir’s Shopian district while he was on leave to attend a marriage in his family.
