New Delhi, Feb. 23 (ANI): The Shiv Sena on Tuesday slammed the Delhi Police for refraining from entering the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus to arrest the five students, who have been charged with sedition.
Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut said when the cops can enter the Chief Minister’s office then what is stopping the men in uniform from entering the JNU and nab the anti-national elements.
“Isn’t JNU in India? Why is the Delhi Police Commissioner, who makes tall claims, is not able to enter the premises of the university and arrest the anti-national elements? You have arrested Kanhaiya, that is fine, what about the other five,” Raut told ANI.
“The police can enter the Golden Temple. They can enter the Chief Minister’s office. But why are they scared now? We want to ask what is stopping you from arresting those who raised anti-national and pro-Afzal Guru slogans,” he added.
Meanwhile, JNU student Umar Khalid and four others against whom a lookout notice had been issued moved the Delhi High Court today, seeking ample security before they surrender so that no untoward incident happens.
The five students Umar Khalid, Anant Prakash Narayan, Ashutosh Kumar, Rama Naga and Anirban Bhattacharya returned to the campus on Sunday night.
Earlier on Monday, Delhi Police Commissioner Bhim Sain Bassi asked the JNU students to join the probe and present evidence of their innocence.
When asked if the police would enter the JNU campus to arrest the students, the top cop said that his men are competent enough to deal with the situation. (ANI)
