WON’T OP­POSE BAIL BUT NO CLEAN CHIT TO KANHAIYA: BASSI

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE - HT Correspondent let­ters@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Delhi Po­lice will not ob­ject to bail for Jawa­har­lal Nehru Univer­sity’s Kanhaiya Ku­mar but hasn’t cleared the stu­dent leader of sedi­tion charges for al­legedly or­gan­is­ing an event where “anti­na­tional” slo­gans were shouted, city po­lice com­mis­sioner BS Bassi said on Wed­nes­day.

He said JNU au­thor­i­ties were co­op­er­at­ing “fully” with the probe and that ev­ery per­son who “thinks about the in­ter­est of the na­tion is sup­port­ing us”.

“The sit­u­a­tion at present re­minds me of the verse ‘Dekh tere sansar ki halaat kya ho gayi hain bhagwan, kitna badal gaya in­saan’ (Oh Lord what has this world come to, how much has the man changed),” he said.

“Peo­ple in huge num­bers par­tic­i­pated in it ( the event), and we have al­ready iden­ti­fied the ring leader. Now we are look­ing for all those who have been iden­ti­fied. Very soon we will get hold of them.”
