Student groups support JNU student leader

New Delhi, Feb 17 (IANS) Ten student organisations on Wednesday came out in support of JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar who has been arrested on sedition charges for allegedly raising anti-India slogans.

“We want a judicial probe into the whole issue, including what happened on the JNU campus on February 9 as we don’t trust the central government agencies,” Vishwajeet Kumar, general secretary of the All India Students Federation (AISF), told the media.

Kanhaiya Kumar is also from the CPI-affiliated AISF.

The student organisations which came out in support of JNU students include the National Students Union of India (NSUI), All India Students Association (AISA), Students Federation of India (SFI), Student for Society (SFS) and the student wings of Rashtriya Janata Dal and Janata Dal-United.

“Representatives from these 10 organisations will take out a protest march from Mandi House to parliament on Thursday and hold a public meeting on Saturday,” SFI’s Vikram Singh said.

Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested for allegedly raising anti-India slogans at the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus on February 9.
