350 Kashmiri medical students have been stuck in Kolkata, Guwahati, Delhi and Agartala
Dhaka. About 350 Kashmiri medical admissions students have been stuck in Delhi, Kolkata, Guwahati and Agartala for a month for failing to get a visa to enter Bangladesh.
On the other hand, students from other states of India are getting visas without any problem.
Those involved in sending students to medical education in Bangladesh say they are in trouble because of the long delay in obtaining visas. Because the parents who pay for that course are now seeking a refund.
“The children have been sitting in hotels in Delhi, Kolkata, Guwahati and even Agartala since mid-December,” said the manager of an educational consultancy dedicated to sending students to medical education in Bangladesh, China and other countries.
Usually Kashmiri students apply for a visa at the Bangladesh High Commission in Delhi. But this year we have been told that only visas will be issued only if we give equal certificates. By MD Abdur Rahman’Dhaka
