Kanhaiya Kumar, CPI leader and former president of JNU Students Union, has increased difficulties. The Delhi government has approved prosecution in the sedition sections. The Kejriwal government has given this approval to the Special Cell of Delhi Police. Recently, the Patiala House Court of Delhi had again directed the Special Cell of Delhi Police to ask the Kejriwal government to clear its stand in the case. The Special Cell of Delhi Police had sought approval from the Kejriwal government to run a case against Kanhaiya Kumar, whose file had been hanging for a long time.
After this, the Kejriwal government clarified its stand and approved it.
What is the charge: On 9 February 2016, videos of slogans were revealed on the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus. After this Delhi Police had investigated these videos and filed a sedition case against the then JNU Students’ Union President Kanhaiya Kumar and others. It is alleged that people seen in the video shouted anti-national slogans in the JNU campus. Delhi Police had filed a charge sheet in this case in January 2019. Kanhaiya Kumar is currently the CPI leader. Recently, Kanhaiya Kumar also contested Lok Sabha elections from Begusarai on CPI ticket, but had to face defeat.
दिल्ली सरकार को सेडिशन केस की परमिशन देने के लिए धन्यवाद। दिल्ली पुलिस और सरकारी वक़ीलों से आग्रह है कि इस केस को अब गंभीरता से लिया जाए, फॉस्ट ट्रैक कोर्ट में स्पीडी ट्रायल हो और TV वाली ‘आपकी अदालत’ की जगह क़ानून की अदालत में न्याय सुनिश्चित किया जाए। सत्यमेव जयते।
