New Delhi, Feb 21. The Supreme Court is likely to hear on Friday a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking direction to the Centre and the state governments to protect Kashmiri students, who are being targeted across the country in the wake of Pulwama terror attack.

PIL was
submitted by Tariq Adeeb

A bench of
Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice L. Nageswara Rao and Justice Sanjiv Khanna
on Thursday said they might hear the PIL on Friday after senior counsel Colin
Gonsalves
mentioned the same for an urgent hearing.

“It is
neither possible, nor necessary,” Gogoi said as Gonsalves urged the court
to hear the PIL in the afternoon at least by 2 p.m.

The PIL
petitioner Tariq Adeeb has referred to a dozen media reports of attack on
Kashmiri students
across the country after a CRPF convoy was attacked
by an explosive-laden SUV on February 14 that resulted in the death of over 40
personnel.

He also said the students from the valley were living in other states in constant fear and threat post the Jammu and Kashmir attack.

Adeeb also
referred to the statement of Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy exhorting the
boycott of Kashmiris and their goods.
