Kanhaiya to be freed soon, bail bond furnished

New Delhi, March 3 (IANS) JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar, accused of sedition, will soon be released from Tihar Jail here as his bail bond has been furnished, a lawyer said on Thursday.

This follows the Delhi High Court’s order on Wednesday granting him a six-month interim bail.

“Kanhaiya’s bail bond has been furnished in front of a magistrate. We are planning to submit his release papers to jail authorities,” advocate Vrinda Grover told IANS.

Kanhaiya Kumar’s bail bond was given a day after the high court judge Pratibha Rani granted him the bail after asking him to furnish a surety of Rs.10,000.

The president of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) was arrested on February 12 on charges of shouting anti-national slogans, a charge he has denied.
