JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar, who has been arrested in connection with a case of sedition, was taken today to an undisclosed location from Tihar jail for questioning. This was after the student leader was sent to one day police custody.
“The student leader was moved out of Tihar jail at around 8.30 pm for questioning,” a senior police officer said without disclosing the location where Kanhaiya was taken by the cops.
The police had applied for the production warrant of Kumar yesterday on the ground that he was needed to be confronted with the other two JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya in view of the discrepancies in their statements regarding the controversial JNU event.
Kanhaiya’s counsel while opposing the police custody said that there was no connection between Kumar and the other two students arrested in the case as they belong to different student wings.
The police had arrested Kumar on February 12, a day after a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy was registered at Vasant Kunj (North) Police Station in connection with an event in the varsity’s campus in which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.
