Aligarh (UP): Three Kashmiri students of the Aligarh Muslim University have been booked for sedition for allegedly raising “anti-India” slogans and trying to hold a prayer meeting for Hizbul Mujahideen commander Manan Bashir Wani, who was killed in an encounter in north Kashmir, officials said.
Senior Superintendent of Police, Aligarh, Ajai Sahni said police took the action after a video surfaced showing the three Kashmiri students raising “anti-India” slogans.”Police have filed an FIR against Wasim Malik, Abdul Mir and one unnamed person. They have been identified on the basis of a video recording,” he said.
AMU spokesman Shafay Kidwai said that show cause notices have been issued to nine students for trying to hold an unauthorised gathering Thursday.
A three-member inquiry committee has been set up to probe the incident. It will submit a report in the next 72 hours, he said.
The three were suspended from the AMU earlier.
