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