JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar released from Tihar jail

New Delhi: JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, accused with sedition charges, was on Thursday evening released from Tihar Jail, after his bail bond was furnished.

 

He was released from prison today following the Delhi High Court's order on Wednesday granting him a six-month interim bail.

 

Kanhaiya Kumar's bail bond was given a day after the high court judge Pratibha Rani granted him the bail after asking him to furnish a surety of Rs.10,000.

 

The president of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) was arrested on February 12 on charges of shouting anti-national slogans, a charge he has denied.
