Aligarh Muslim University student who reportedly became a terrorist, now praised in University’s enquiry report

In the first week of January, a news had broken that a geology student pursuing his PhD with the Aligarh Muslim University had reportedly become a terrorist with the terror organisation Hizbul Mujahideen.

This was ascertained after a photograph of him holding an AK-47 surfaced on social media, with a message that, “Mannan Wani, son of Bashir Ahmed Wani, joined Mujahideen on January 5”. Apart from this, support started pouring in on social media from the usual elements from Kashmir and Pakistan wishing Wani success in his ‘mission’.

Soon after the news blew up, Wani was expelled from the university. Apart from this, the Uttar Pradesh police conducted raids in the campus and it is believed that suspicious material has been found from in Wani’s room. The recovered material include books, photocopies, and pen drives.

Apart from expelling Wani, the University had also set-up an inquiry in this matter, which is now in the news for supposedly ‘praising’ the student turned terrorist.

As per reports, an inquiry which was submitted by AMU to the police, has described him as a brilliant student who had nothing objectionable against him, in context of the university.

A total of two inquiries were initiated in the matter, one was led by a two member committee which consisted of JN Medical College professor SH Arif from the department of pathology and Kamlesh Chandra from ENT department. It has been claimed in the report that during his five year enrolment at the university, Wani had nothing suspicious on his record.

The second committee led by the varsity proctor, Professor Mohd Mohsin Khan, has submitted a 20 page report, which is similar to the other committee’s report.

The Aligarh’s senior superintendent of police Rajesh Pandey has said that these reports would be sent to the Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) for a detailed examination.

This episode was also in the news after a section of the media reports claimed that the roommate of Wani was also missing. This was debunked by the roommate’s kin who claimed that he discontinued his PhD in September 2016 after he was offered a job with a reputed corporation in Maharashtra.
