The Hizbul Mujahideen has confirmed that AMU scholar Mannan Wani has joined the outfit. The confirmation comes at a time when the police continue to probe whether Wani had joined the outfit or not.
In the month of November 2017, there was a post on the social media about how a youth from Kashmir had been harassed by the Indian Army. It was a posting by Mannan Wani, the research scholar from the Aligarh Muslim University who is said to have joined the Hizbul Mujahideen somewhere in south Kashmir.
He had won accolades for his paper on flood risk assessment in his home town of North Kashmir using remote sensing and GIS techniques. This is research scholar from Aligarh Muslim University Mannan Wani who took a break to go to his home town.
