JNU Sedition Case | Chargesheet Filed Against Kanhaiya Kumar, Others


The Delhi Police today filed a 1200-page chargesheet in the JNU sedition case against former JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar and other activists, including Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, Delhi Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik.

The Patiala House Court will take up the chargesheet for consideration on Tuesday. The chargesheet has been filed under various sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) including 124A (sedition), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 465 (forgery), 471 (using as genuine, forged document), 143 (punishment for unlawful assembly), 149 (unlawful assembly with common object), 147(rioting), and 120B (criminal conspiracy).

Reacting to the chargesheet against him, Kanhaiya said that the move coming just before the elections shows it is politically motivated. “I would like to thank police and Modi Ji. The filing of the chargesheet after three years, just ahead of elections clearly shows it is politically motivated. I trust the judiciary of my country,” Kanhaiya said.
