SRINAGAR: As un­easy calm pre­vails at Na­tional In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, Bol­ly­wood ac­tor-turned-po­lit­i­cal ac­tivist Anupam Kher and film­maker Ashoke Pan­dit were not al­lowed to pro­ceed to­wards the cam­pus, af­ter they landed at Srinagar air­port on Sun­day morn­ing. The duo was not al­lowed to en­ter the Srinagar city and flown back to New Delhi in the next flight, as po­lice feared it could again stoke ten­sion inside the cam­pus. This trig­gered a se­ries of protest state­ments from both the ac­tivists on mi­cro-blog­ging site twit­ter and other so­cial me­dia plat­forms.
