JNU row: Kejriwal urged to establish authenticity of evidence

New Delhi, Feb 13 (IANS) A delegation of political leaders on Saturday met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and requested him to launch a probe to establish the authenticity of the evidence of the JNU campus incident.

The delegation included CPI-M general secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI national secretary D. Raja and Janata Dal-United secretary general K.C. Tyagi.

“Authenticity of evidence must be established, which is only possible through an independent inquiry,” Yechury said after meeting Kejriwal.

“We requested the CM to institute an independent inquiry in the matter.”

Jawaharlal Nehru University students on Tuesday had organised a meet on the campus to mourn the hanging of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) co-founder Maqbool Bhat, where anti-India slogans were raised.

Another commemorative meeting was held at the Press Club of India in Delhi on Wednesday where too, anti-India slogans were raised and placards were shown.

Yechury said that since the incident took place in the territory of Delhi, so the “city government reserves all rights to establish the authenticity of evidence”.

Tyagi said the veracity of the video clippings — showing people shouting anti-national slogans — that were being circulated should be checked and “Kejriwal is best in doing so”.

Delhi Police on Friday arrested JNU Students Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar on charges of raising anti-India slogans during the demonstration on the campus.
