JNU row: Delhi HC to hear Kanhaiya

Submitted by alvin on Wed, 2016-02-24 09:38 New Delhi: The hearing on the bail plea of Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union president Kanhaiya Kumar's, who was arrested on sedition charges, will be resumed in the Delhi High Court on Wednesday. The Delhi Police had earlier raised opposition against Kanhaiya's bail plea hearing citing that there is enough evidence against him. "We have enough evidence, documents and material against the accused and the whole lot to proceed against them under the charges of sedition," Special Public Prosecutor Shailendra Babbar told the media here. Meanwhile, JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, who have been booked on charges of sedition, surrendered before Delhi Police late last night. The students left the University campus and entered a JNU security van in which the cops were waiting for them. The two have been placed under police custody at South Campus police station and are likely to be produced before a magistrate today. (ANI)
