New Delhi: Amid the ongoing controversy over anti-India slogans being raised at an event at the Jawaharlal Nehru University against the hanging of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi will meet Home Minister Rajnath on Saturday to discuss further action over the matter.

The meeting will take place at Rajnath's residence at 11:30 am.

Rajnath had earlier asserted that strict action will be taken against the demonstrators and said that 'anti-national' elements will not be tolerated.

"When someone is in the country and raises anti-national statements, raising questions on India's unity, diversity and sovereignty then they won't be forgiven. What happened in JNU was unfortunate and for that, I have already given the necessary instructions to the Delhi Police Commissioner," Rajnath told ANI.

Promising firm action against the demonstrators, he reiterated that anti-national statements cannot be forgiven.

"You can't raise anti-national statements while you stay in India," he added.

Earlier, the Delhi Police registered a case of sedition against the JNU students who had agitated against the hanging of Guru following complaints by Bharatiya Janata Party MP Maheish Girri and RSS's student front Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad.
