Singh's directive to the state and setting up the helpline came after violence in Rajasthan's Chittogarh on Kashmiri youth by locals and emergence of posters in Meerut asking students from the state to leave Uttar Pradesh. (Boycott Kashmiris who pelt stones at the Indian Army). "Kashmiriyo, Uttar Pradesh chhodo warna". "Kashmiris leave UP or." a hoarding, which carried the name of the outfit's chief Amit Jani, warned.

Hansraj Ahir, the Minister of State for Home, talking to media in New Delhi said, "We do accept that the situation in Kashmir is not completely under control".

The Home Minister said he had heard that "in one or two parts of India, people misbehaved with Kashmiri youth". Upon learning that the students were from Kashmir, they started beating them up.

Condemning the incidents, the Home Minister said proper inquiry should be initiated in each case and strongest possible action should be taken against the guilty.

Days after Kashmiri students in Rajasthan's Mewar University were beaten up, state chief minister Vasundhara Raje on Friday said her government has taken action against the accused.

He also informed that he had already asked the home ministry to immediately circulate an advisory to all states in this regard.

Singh told ANI, "Last evening I got to know that some Kashmiri youth have been mistreated".

However, according to the TOI report, the FIR lodged by these students does not say anything about the "stone-pelter" taunt because they do not want the issue to flare-up as it's exam time for them.
