New Delhi, Feb. 13 (ANI): Leaders of the Left Parties and the Janata Dal (United) on Saturday met Home Minister Rajnath Singh in connection with Jawaharlal Nehru University row.
They demanded release of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar, who was remanded to three-day police custody by a Delhi court on Friday.
He has been charged with sedition and conspiracy for allegedly indulging in anti-India activities.
A group of students on Tuesday held an event on the campus to mark the death anniversary of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. During the event, some students shouted anti-India slogans.
Talking to reporters after meeting with Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said the Home Minister has assured them that the investigation will not be carried out against any innocent person.
On the other hand, BJP leader Shrikant Sharma said rather than condemning such slogans, some political parties are justifying it which is shameful.
Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi also met Rajnath Singh over the JNU issue. He is believed to have submitted a status report regarding the JNU row. (ANI)
