JNUSU president Kanhaiya moves SC for bail, hearing tomorrow

New Delhi: JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar, who is in judicial custody till March 2 has moved the Supreme Court for bail. The court will hear his bail plea tomorrow. Yesterday, Delhi police chief BS Bassi had said they would not oppose the bail.

 

A senior Home Ministry official told the Hindu yesterday that the Delhi Police may have to drop the sedition charges against the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union president because they did not have evidence to back their claim that he was shouting anti-national slogans.

 

Though Delhi Police Commissioner B.S Bassi claimed they did have enough evidence, the Home Ministry official said the Delhi Police had once again written to television channels seeking raw footage of the event on February 9.
