New Delhi, Feb. 17 (ANI): The Delhi Police on Wednesday claimed that as per their investigation some outsiders were also involved in the chanting of ‘anti-national’ slogans in the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus.
“We are the ones carrying out the investigation and people are the ones coming up with speculations. We have adequate evidence against Kanhaiya on basis of which he has been arrested. As per our investigation, some outsiders were also involved apart from JNU students. We are investigating this aspect,” Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi told ANI here.
“We have evidence, we will sift evidence, and take steps according to the law. We are unbiased, not at all prejudiced. JNU authorities are cooperating fully with us, all those who believe in integrity of the country are cooperating with the investigation,” he added.
Bassi was also critical of news published by a news agency which said that security agencies had no proof of Kanhaiya’s involvement in the whole episode.
“If a news agency is running some news, then you can overlook it. Either you agree with the information provided by the news agency, or on the people who are investigating it,” he added.
In a report submitted to the Ministry of Home Affairs on its crackdown on a group of protesting JNU students on February 9, the Delhi Police yesterday said that Democratic Students Union (DSU) activists led by Umar Khalid raised anti-national slogans on that day.
However, the report said that Kanhaiya Kumar didn’t raise anti-national slogans but was just standing with DSU activists. (ANI)
