New Delhi, Feb. 18 (ANI): Former Delhi University lecturer S.A.R. Geelani, who was arrested on the charges of sedition, will be produced before the Patiala House court on Thursday, as his two-day police custody ends today.
Geelani was arrested on the charges of sedition in connection with an event held at the Press Club of India (PCI) on February 10, where allegedly ‘anti-India’ slogans were raised.
Earlier, the police produced Geelani before Metropolitan Magistrate Harvinder Singh and sought two-day police custody.
Geelani’s arrest comes amid a raging controversy over the arrest of Jawaharlal Nehru University’s students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar on the sedition charges.
After a case was registered, the police questioned DU professor Ali Javed, a Press Club member, who had booked the hall for the event. (ANI)
