Azhar President Ibrahim Hodhod on Wednesday decided to expel students involved in the assassination operation of public prosecutor Hisham Barakat.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Azhar Media Centre said the decision was taken after launching necessary legal interrogation according to Law No.74 for the Year 1961.
The expulsion decision will be notified to all Egyptian universities.
The names of the three expelled students have been included in the university decision declared earlier in the day.
The three face charges of being involved in the assassination of Egypt's prosecutor and joining a banned terrorist group which carries out terrorist attacks at home and abroad.
