Treason case against Kanhaiya Kumar, Delhi government approved

New Delhi: The Delhi government has given its approval on Friday to prosecute Kanhaiya Kumar. Kanhaiya Kumar, who was allegedly involved in the anti-national sloganeering case in JNU, needed approval from the Delhi government for the prosecution of treason, which has now been given. On 9 February 2016, anti-national slogans were raised in the JNU campus on the anniversary of the execution of 2002 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. The crime branch of Delhi Police had filed a 1200-page chargesheet and named Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya and seven other Kashmiri students as the main accused.

Kanhaiya Kumar reacted to the matter saying that the charge sheet was filed for the first time when I was going to contest elections and now Bihar elections are going to be held again. Bihar has an NDA government, the state government has passed a resolution in the assembly against NRC-NPR. It is clear that this case was made for political gain and delayed. I want a speedy trial in a fast-track court so that the entire country knows how a law like sedition is being misused.

Earlier, on February 24, the Supreme Court dismissed a petition seeking direction to the Delhi government to approve the time-bound prosecution in the 2016 sedition case against Kanhaiya Kumar, former president of Jawaharlal Nehru University JNU) Students’ Union. Chief Justice Justice S.A. The bench headed by Bobde had said that the court cannot do so on such a general request.

The lower court also refused to give instructions to the Delhi government in this regard, following which advocate Shashank Dev Sudhi filed an application in the Supreme Court against the Delhi High Court order. DO Sudhi had said that the verdict on prosecution was to be given within three months, but the matter has been pending with the Delhi government for more than a year.
