No clean chit to JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar: Delhi Police chief BS Bassi

New Delhi: Delhi Police commissioner BS Bassi on Wednesday refused to give a clean chit to Jawaharlal Nehru student union president Kanhaiya Kumar, accused of participating in anti-India activities.

Bassi, who briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over JNU row today, defended the Delhi Police action of arresting and slapping sedition charges on JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar and claimed that they have irrefutable proof against him.

"We have adequate evidence against JNU student leader, Kanhaiya Kumar on basis of which he has been arrested," Bassi said.


Taking a jibe at those who slammed the Delhi Police over JNU crackdown, the Delhi Police Commissioner said, "We are the ones carrying out the investigation and people are the ones coming up with conjectures."

The Delhi police chief also claimed that the pro-Afzal Guru event at JNU campus had backing of some 'outsiders' and investigations have been launched in this aspect.

"As per our investigation some outsiders were also involved apart from JNU students. We are investigating this aspect. We have identified people who raised anti-India slogans at JNU campus. Investigation is being conducted to find out their real intentions behind the event. They will be nabbed soon," he said.

Earlier today, Bassi had said that police are probing suspected financial links between terror outfits and students allegedly involved in the raising of anti-India slogans at JNU campus.

Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested under sedition charges and has been accused of raising anti-India slogans at the Afzal Guru event organised at the JNU campus on February 9. Kanhaiya, who was sent to police custody till February 17, will be produced before the Patiala House court today.
