A bench, comprising Chief Justice Rnajan Gogoi and Justices L N Rao and Sanjiv Khanna, on Thursday took note of senior advocate Colin Gonsalves' submission that the plea needed to be heard urgently as it relates to the safety and security of students.

The bench, which refused to list the plea for hearing on Thursday, however, assured Gonsalves that it will be listed for consideration on Friday.

The plea alleged that students from Kashmir Valley are being attacked at different educational institutions across the country after the terror attack and authorities concerned should be directed to take actions to stop such assaults.

Forty 40 personnel were killed in south Kashmir's district on February 14, in a terror attack allegedly carried out by banned terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed.
