Aligarh (UP), Feb 15: The AMU on Friday suspended an undergraduate student from Kashmir for allegedly lauding a militant outfit in a social media post after the strike in Pulwama in which 49 CRPF personnel were killed.

Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) spokesperson Omar Peerzada told PTI that the matter is being further probed and “strong deterrent action” will be taken once the investigation is complete.

“AMU has zero tolerance for any such pernicious activity and anyone indulging in such an act will not be spared,” Peerzada said.

The student’s alleged remarks had triggered outrage on social media.

However, the Kashmiris students studying at the varsity denied that any such comment was ever posted.
