SRINAGAR, May 18 : Days after few Kashmiri students were harassed by Punjab police, a cabinet minister of Punjab has assured that no students will be put to trouble and “elements creating trouble will be dealt with strictly”.

“Punjab is having a congenial atmosphere after assuming government by Chief Minister Amrinder Singh. There should be no harassment to any student studying in Punjab. Any element creating trouble in Punjab will be dealt with strong hand,” Finance Minister of Punjab Manpreet Singh Badal told a Sikh delegation led by All Parties Sikh Coordination Committee (APSCC) Chairman Jagmohan Singh Raina.

“The minister assured us that Kashmiri students are comfortable in Punjab,” Raina told.
