Indo-Pak cricket match: NIT orders closure of shops in Kashmir campus

Authorities at National Institute of Technology Hazratbal, Srinagar on Wednesday ordered the closure of all the shops inside the campus in view of Indo-Pak cricket clash which is scheduled to begin from 5:00 pm today.

“In view of Indo-Pak cricket match scheduled today i.e. 19/09/2018, all shopkeepers of the NIT campus are hereby directed to close their shops from 4:00 pm to midnight as a precautionary measure to avoid untoward incident,” reads a notification issued by the Ex-Engineer P&D wing of NIT Hazratbal, Srinagar.

An official told GNS that the decision was taken to avoid any tension between local and non-local students who would watch Indo-Pak match at shops inside the campus.

Last year, local and non-local students clashed during the Indo-Pak cricket match. The clash prompted NIT authorities to suspend class work for several days. (GNS)
