Mizo students' body demands apology from NIT students

Aizawl, 3 May: Mizo Students' Union has demanded an apology from six non-tribal students of National Institute of Technology (NIT) hostel, Aizawl centre for "spreading rumours" against Mizo students. After finding that the allegations were baseless, the MSU had filed an FIR to Aizawl police station to take necessary action against the six students whose allegations could stir up communal violence. Prompted by the police's "inaction" on the case, the MSU leaders today met NIT Aizawl director Prof U C Ray at his office during they expressed strong disapproval to the allegations made by the students which the MSU felt as an attempt to create disharmony among the students from different communities and religions.

The MSU demanded the six students to make a joint press statement of apology and circulate it to the local media and post it on the PMO webpage within this week.

The students on March 17 posted about an "incident" on the previous night in which the Mizo students alleged harassed them and even "threatened to kill" them on grounds and "spoke ill" of their religion. An internal inquiry conducted by the institute has served showcause notice to six non-Mizo students and two Mizo students. Sources said there are two Mizo students and the rest are from other states.UNI ZS AKM SW BL1750
