The Aligarh Muslim University has suspended three Kashmiri students for offering funeral prayers in absentia for scholar-turned-militant Manan Wani who was killed in a gunfight with the government forces in Kupwara yesterday, a media report said.

“The three Kashmiri students were suspended as they violated the university’s discipline and rules and indulged in unlawful assembly,” The Times of India quoted the varsity proctor Mohsin Khan as having said.

“Four other students who supported the namaz will be issued a show cause notice. The students and their academic details are being identified. Anti-national activities will not be tolerated in the university campus.” 

The report said that fifteen Kashmiri students had gathered at Kennedy Hall of the varsity for offering funeral prayers.

Wani was pursuing a doctorate in geology at AMU when he joined the militant outfit in January this year.
