Sedition row: Another JNU student Ashutosh Kumar grilled

New Delhi, Feb. 27 (ANI): Another Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Ashtosh Kumar, who is among one of the five students who have been charged with sedition, was questioned by the Delhi Police on Saturday in connection with the controversial event at the University campus on February 9 where ‘anti-India’ slogans were raised.

The Delhi Police had earlier on February 20 issued a look-out notice against Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya, Rama Naga, Ashutosh Kumar and Anant Prakash.

Khalid and Bhattacharya surrendered to the police and with their three-day police custody ending today, the Delhi police will produce both of them in a makeshift court room following an order by the Delhi High Court to “maintain confidentiality” during their remand proceedings.

Meanwhile, the Congress today demanded that the case of JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who is booked on charges of sedition, should be transferred to a non-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ruled state of either Uttar Pradesh or Bihar, so that the truth in the case is revealed. (ANI)
