    Delhi govt nod to prosecute Kanhaiya Kumar in sedition case

    Feb 28, 2020 19:55 IST

    The Delhi government on Friday allowed the Delhi Police to go ahead with prosecuting JNU Students' Union president Kanhaiya Kumar and others in a sedition case. The nod comes just days after a court directed the police to send a reminder to the Delhi government on its application for prosecution sanction which is pending with the home department since January 14. The police had filed a charge sheet in January 2019 against Kumar and others, including former Jawaharlal Nehru University students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, saying they were leading a procession and supported seditious slogans raised on the campus during an event on February 9, 2016. The court had, however, asked the police to take requisite sanction for prosecution.
