AMU to hold student council polls on Nov 13

ANI  |  Aligarh (Uttar Pradesh) [India] 

The annual elections of the Aligarh Muslim University Students' Union (AMUSU) will be held on November 13.

The results will be declared on the same day.

The announcement of the election dates comes few days after around 1,200 Kashmiri students threatened to leave their studies midway if the sedition charges against three of the students were not withdrawn.

On October 15, three Kashmiri students of the varsity were reportedly slapped with sedition charges for allegedly raising anti-India slogans and trying to hold a prayer meeting to mourn the death of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Manas Bashir Wani.

However, AMU vice-chancellor Tariq Mansoor later clarified that the university administration has not slapped sedition charges against any student.
