Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Tuesday sought the intervention of Union Minister for Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar to ensure smooth studies of the Kashmiri students at the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).

Governor Malik also shared his concern on the issue with AMU Vice-Chancellor Professor Tariq Mansoor.

He urged both Javadekar and Professor Mansoor to ensure that Kashmiri students are allowed to continue their studies in a safe, secure and well-disposed academic environment.

Around 1,200 Kashmiri students studying in AMU threatened to leave their studies midway if sedition charges filed against some of the students were not withdrawn.

Recently, a group of students were suspended for allegedly raising anti-India slogans in the university. Two Kashmiri students were also stated to have been part of the slogan shouting brigade.

According to reports, the students apparently also mourned the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen's top commander Manan Waniand and Ashiq Hussain Zargar who were killed by security forces in an encounter.

The Aligarh Police launched a probe and subsequently a case was registered against the protesters under sections 147, 148, 124 A, 153A, 153B, 504 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

On Monday, former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti urged the Centre to withdraw cases against the Kashmiri students.
