Aligarh: The walkout of 1200 Kashmiri student on Wednesday from Aligarh Muslim University was cancelled after the university dropped its charges against three Kashmiri students.
 
According to sources, the university revoked the suspension and show cause notices for the students on Tuesday. They said that no credible evidence of their participation in any unlawful assembly in the campus was found.
 
“AMU spokesman Sahafay Kidwai said the suspension of AMU research scholars Wasim Ayub Malik and Abdul Hasib Meer was revoked after "they were exonerated by a three-member enquiry committee of the university,” reported NDTV.
 
The charges of sedition and raising anti-India slogans against the three still stand as far as the Police are concerned. Sabrang India spoke to a witness who said that the Police filed the FIR based on their own intelligence sources which are yet to be verified. He said that they will demand to drop the charges as soon as possible.
 
Peoples Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti on Monday sought the withdrawal of sedition charges against three Kashmiri students of the Aligarh Muslim University, reported PTI.


 
“It will be a travesty to punish them for remembering their former colleague who was a victim of relentless violence in Kashmir,” she said in another tweet.
 
Three Kashmiri students were slapped with sedition charges and suspended for holding a funeral prayer for slain Hizbul Mujahideen militant Manan Bashir Wani, incidentally also an AU scholar at the university. He was killed in an encounter in Handwara town of Kashmir last week.
