Fresh sedition case against Kanhaiya for ‘disrespecting’ Indian Army

New Delhi (DC): A fresh sedition case was filed against Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar by a right-wing activist on Saturday, for allegedly ‘disrespecting’ the Indian Army.

A Bajrang Dal activist from Bulandshahr filed the case against the student leader, accusing him of making ‘anti-national’ statements during a speech he delivered on International Women’s Day on March 8th.


“On International Women’s Day, JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar made some highly insensitive remarks against the brave soldiers of the Indian Army. In an attempt to vilify the forces, he claimed that our soldiers rape women and commit atrocities in Kashmir and the North East.” Hemant Singh, a Bajrang Dal activist was quoted in a report.

However, the activist claims that the UP police refused to register his complaint and he had to approach the court for initiating action against Kanhaiya. Hemant claims he has also submitted video clips of Kanhaiya making ‘false statements’ as proof.

The Bulandshahr Session Court in Uttar Pradesh will take up the matter for hearing on March 28th.

Kanhaiya who was earlier arrested on charges of sedition was released from Tihar jail on March 3. The Delhi Court granted him interim bail for six months on the condition that he would co-operate with police in the probe against him.
