New Delhi: Bollywood actor Anupam Kher has said that he will visit NIT Srinagar to meet the students as he feels that it's important to give them moral support.

Earlier, on Saturday night, around 150 youths, who left Delhi for NIT Srinagar with Tricolors, were detained by police in Lakhanpur of Jammu and Kashmir.

The 150 youths on Saturday had embarked on their journey from Delhi to Srinagar to show solidarity with the non-Kashmiri students at the National Institute of Technology (NIT) in Jammu and Kashmir, following the unrest at the institute.

Holding the national flags, the youths led by Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena's head Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga commenced the protest march in the morning from Rakabganj Gurudwara in New Delhi to reach NIT Srinagar.

Bagga, in a press statement said, two buses and seven cars have been arranged for the youths participating in "Chalo NIT" rally. They will reach Srinagar on Sunday.
