JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar, arrested last week on charges of sedition, did raise anti-national slogans in the campus, Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi said on Monday.
Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi said that there was irrefutable proof against Kanhaiya Kumar. He also said that the police are looking into the content of various tweets which were “blasphemous and objectionable”.
“Kanhaiya Kumar had joined the meeting in the campus where anti-national slogans were raised. He also raised these slogans,” Bassi told the media.
Kumar, who is with the CPI-affiliated All India Students Federation (AISF), has denied the charge.
Bassi said Kumar’s interrogation was still on and further action would be taken after the investigation gets completed.
He also claimed to have identified students who were also part of the JNU campus meeting on Kashmir on February 9 and were on the run.
Kumar was arrested on February 12 on charges of sedition and criminal conspiracy for allegedly raising anti-national slogans at a meeting to mark the anniversary of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru’s execution.
