JNU row: Students’ body demonstrates

New Delhi, Feb 16 (IANS) The police on Tuesday rounded up about 20 members of Campus India, a student organisation, demonstrating here against the arrest of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar.

The protestors were picked up by Delhi Police from Shastri Bhavan, which houses the Ministry of Human Resources Development and other central government ministries, and were taken to the police station.

“We demand an unconditional release of JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar and sedition charges put against him must be revoked,” Abdul Nazar, the president of Campus India, told IANS.

That Kanhaiya was never involved in anti-India sloganeering is very much evident in the video that was put on YouTube, he said.

“We also demand strong action be taken against the perpetrators of the anti-India event that took place on February 9. It is the central government who is politicising the entire episode,” Nazar said.

Campus India claims to be a pan-India student body with representatives from JNU, Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi University, Hyderabad University and others.
