The Ghaziabad resident who recently tried to slap JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar on campus filed a complaint against the student leader on Saturday for his remarks about army men allegedly raping Kashmiri women.

“From day one, I have been observing his speeches and the previous instance where anti-national slogans were raised on the JNU campus. I had decided to speak to him and challenge him for a debate. But those days, there were legal proceedings going on. So I decided to wait,” said Vikas Chaudhary (26).

Chaudhary, who works with a private developer at Raj Nagar Extension, said Kanhaiya made derogatory remarks against the army after he was released on bail.

“I could not stop myself and went to meet him at JNU… he refused to speak to me. Several people said I was not a student and pushed me. I too pushed them. They alleged that I tried to slap Kanhaiya,” he said.

Kanhaiya Kumar on Tuesday told a gathering of students, “We will speak against Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA). With all my due respect to army soldiers, I will say this that in Kashmir women are raped by security personnel.”

Chaudhary, in his complaint to the Ghaziabad police, also alleged that both Kanhaiya and Umar Khalid raised anti-national slogans under a conspiracy.

“I have forwarded my written complain to the police…They are yet to lodge any FIR so far,” he said.

Kanhaiya Kumar sedition charges in connection with an event where anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.

“The contents of the complaint will be verified and we will even consider their jurisdiction area. Some legal process is already going on in Delhi,” said Ashok Shishodia, Kavi Nagar station house officer.
