Two Kashmiri students of Jamia Millia Islamia were questioned in connection with the missing of research scholar of Aligarh Muslim University, Mannan Wani, who has reportedly joined Hizb ul Mujahideen.
“The students, from Kashmir, were questioned Monday evening by officials of intelligence agencies and local police and later allowed to go,” The Indian Express reported.
Quoting police sources, the report said the two students who stay at the Jamia hostel, were seen in CCTV footage recovered by UP Police during the probe.
“Wani had last paid a visit to Delhi on January 3 and reportedly met them. The two students had also visited AMU and met Wani during seminars,” they said.
Meanwhile, the Jamia administration objected to the action.
“It doesn’t make sense why police are so paranoid about particular universities,” the report quoted Jamia Media Coordinator Saima Saeed as saying.
