Centre must intervene in withdrawing cases against students &Â AMU authorities must revoke their suspension, she posted on Twitter.
SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti Monday demanded withdrawal of cases against three AMU students from the Valley who were booked after they allegedly tried to hold a prayer meeting for slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Manan Bashir Wani.
She said state governments outside Jammu and Kashmir should be sensitive to the situation and prevent further alienation.
“It will be a travesty to punish them (students) for remembering their former colleague (Wani) who was a victim of relentless violence in Kashmir,” she said in another tweet.
She also asked the Centre to intervene in the matter.The three Kashmiri students of the AMU were booked Friday for sedition for allegedly raising ‘anti-India’ slogans and trying to hold a prayer meeting for Wani, aday after he was killed in a gun battle with security forces in north Kashmir’s Handwara area.“Pushing youth to the wall will be counter productive.
