Kanhaiya granted interim bail for 6 months by Delhi HC

532237_thumpNew Delhi(PTI): JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar, arrested in a sedition case, was today granted interim bail for six months by the Delhi High Court which said that he has to cooperate in the ongoing investigation and has to present himself before the investigators as and when required.

A bench of Justice Pratibha Rani gave the relief to Kanhaiya who is presently lodged in Tihar jail under judicial custody, by asking him to furnish a personal bond of Rs 10,000 and a surety of like amount.

The high court made it clear that a JNU faculty member has to stand as surety for Kanhaiya.

Further, it said that the accused has to furnish an undertaking that he will not violate any of the conditions mentioned in the bail order.

Kanhaiya was arrested on February 12 in connection with the case in which he and others, including two arrested JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, are accused of raising anti-India slogans during an event organised inside the JNU campus on February 9.

He had sought bail claiming that he had not raised any anti-India slogans but the Delhi Police had maintained before the high court that they have evidence to show that the accused had raised anti-national slogans.

The two other students who were arrested are in 14 days judicial custody.


  1. Dear readers,

    Certainly HRD camp and Delhi police under central Home minister will not be happy with this new development.The worst fear for Student leader Kanhaiya kumar may be other comrades still under police custody. In order to pit against each other,the student may be tortured in police custody and asked to sign some blank papers or give some false testimonies against their own college mates.

    In latest development,The report submitted by Truth Labs to the Delhi government has exposed the lies that were spread about what transpired in JNU campus after the Afzal Guru event.

    Two of seven JNU videos manipulated, finds forensic probe

    JNU Row: Smriti Irani’s former aide doctored Kanhaiya Kumar video? Forensic tests raise doubts

    The videos that were used as evidence to justify JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar’s arrest under charges of Sedition, have been found to be doctored, reports claimed on Tuesday. Two out of the seven videos that were sent to forensic laboratories for examination, were found to be ‘problematic’ and had clearly been doctored, reports accessed by India Today indicated. But what was even more shocking was that one of the two tampered videos was put on the internet by a former aide of Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani!

    In an exclusive investigation into the authenticity of the tapes that were widely circulated on the social media and were also used by many media channels to show Kumar as anti-national, India Today had revealed that the tapes had been tampered with. Now, the supplementary reports submitted by the Truth Labs to the Delhi government as part of the probe, have confirmed the reports. What is even more scandalising is that one of the videos in question was sourced from Shilpi Tiwari, who was the campaign manager of Smriti Irani, during the Lok Sabha elections for the Amethi constituency.

    The video was known to have been sourced from from a URL address ‘shilpitiwari.’ Tiwari is an active propagandist of the Sanghi ideology on Twitter and was known to troll anyone and everyone who would crticize the Prime Minister. According to a report in Janta Ka Reporter said that Tiwari was so close to Irani that she was even given the designation of a consultant to Irani at a salary of Rs. 35,000 per month. The report has also quoted the forensic report as saying that “‘abrupt changes were found in the pitch and the intensity contours….indicating that the recording is not authentic.”

    So, all eyes were on the after Irani’s impassioned – and dramatic – speech at the parliament on Wednesday. In a fiery exchange between her Mayawati over Rohith Vemula’s suicide, Irabi had said this:

    “Agar mere uttar se aap santusht na ho to main apna sar kalam karke aapke charnoon main chhod doongi.” (if you are not satisfied with my reply, I will cut of my head and place it at your feet).”

    ‘Kyunki Mantriji kabhi student nahi thi’ the new Mother India, at your service and ready for the supreme sacrifice for her ‘blatant lies’?

  2. Dear readers

    As an aside, let me say that we have noticed that under the sophisticated training of the RSS, that rumor machine par excellence, BJP folk have evolved from simply ranting and frothing at the mouth, to solemnly reading out pure glorious inventions from pieces of paper, making it all appear official and authenticated. Like our favorite MLA who carried out the survey that established the exact number of condoms used per day in JNU – newspaper reports say that he read the figures out from a a paper in his hand. (That his claims about JNU are the displaced products of his own sexual fantasies became clear after photographs emerged, that showed him dancing with women and showering them with money. It is not an unrelated matter that these sons of Bharat Mata play out their nationalism on the bodies of women, with rapes, rape threats and rape fantasies forming the core of their devotion to their Motherland.

    BJP MLA who said 3,000 condoms found in JNU caught in scandal

    Ahuja after the Ramgarh MLA accused JNU students of “misdeeds with our sisters and daughters”, saying more than 10,000 cigarette butts, 4,000 beedis, 50,000 bone pieces, 2,000 wrappers and 3,000 used condoms were found on the campus.

    This condom counting BJP MLA, also showed him wearing a garland made up of Rs 500 notes.

    This BJP MLA is carrying ‘swachh Bharat abhiyan’ in JNU campus and counting used condom is still mystery.

    While Rajasthan CM hailed for her humanitarian mission arranging visa for Lalit Modi,his cabinet MLA are sweeping campus for condoms,used beedi.

  3. Based on reports, this ‘student’ is 28 years old. By 28, I was working as Project Manager in US while Praveena Pinto was working as a Supervisor at a Saudi farm. What’s this ‘student’ leader doing at the age of 28 in college?

  4. By 28, I was working as Project Manager in US while -Atheist Mr.Original pai

    Sir,So you are project manager of RSS overseas wing of ‘Hindu Swayamsevak sangh’, a social organisation busy collecting money from overseas Indians to created hatred in India?

    BJP has taken advantage of over Rs.300 crores in foreign funding through Sangh Parivar’s foreign affiliates. This MUST stop!


    India-based Sangh affiliates receive social and financial support from its U.S.-based wings, the latter of which exist largely as tax-exempt non-profit organizations in the United States: Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA), Sewa International USA, Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation-USA. The Overseas Friends of the Bharatiya Janata Party – USA (OFBJP) is active as well, though it is not a tax-exempt group.

    Every year, charitable organisations based in the US donate millions of dollars of funding to non-profit groups affiliated with the Sangh Parivar, either in India or overseas. A new report published by the South Asia Citizens Web reveals just how much, and to whom it is going.

    The report, titled ‘Hindu Nationalism in the United States: A Report on Nonprofit Groups’, was released via sacw.net on July 1. It studies the rise within Indo-American Hindu communities, and in US universities, of various non-profit organisations affiliated with Sangh Parivar groups like the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.



    Mr.Original Pai who defend is esteem Sangh ideology in his daily troll and connect me to ‘anti-national’ is not surprise to many in this forum. Will he able to answer why the so called social organization need military style weapons training?Does RSS maintains registered members list and furnish audit report to the Home ministry every year?

      Wow! Leonardo DiCaprio… Leonardo da Vinci….. my dear Rampu… I’m HIGHLY unimpressed! 🙂

      Err, Herr Rampa – This ‘US’, is it the SAME place they call ‘El Dorado’? Where one can shovel-up gold off the streets (when one is NOT shoveling off snow)?

      Is it THAT what attracted you to that land? And hey.. didn’t YOU call it MY land? (wink wink).

      A PM for RSS in yumreeka. Wow. The bitter half must be v proud. 🙂
