2016 JNU protests part of con­spir­acy, says chargesheet

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - FRONT PAGE - Ra­jshekhar.Jha @times­group.com

New Delhi: The Delhi po­lice spe­cial cell charged for­mer JNU stu­dent lead­ers Kan­haiya Ku­mar, Syed Umar Khalid and Anir­ban Bhat­tacharya on Mon­day with sedi­tion, crim­i­nal con­spir­acy and other crimes in con­nec­tion with a Fe­bru­ary 9, 2016, event at the uni­ver­sity to protest against the hang­ing of Par­lia­ment at­tack mas­ter­mind Afzal Guru. TOI had re­ported first, in Mon­day’s edi­tion, that a chargesheet would be filed in court later in the day.

A 1,200-page chargesheet say­ing the 2016 event was the out­come of a well-planned con­spir­acy dur­ing which anti-na­tional slo­gans were raised by the mob was filed in the court of met­ro­pol­i­tan mag­is­trate Su­mit Anand, who put up the fi­nal re­port for a com­pe­tent court to con­sider on Tues­day.

Apart from Khalid, Kan­haiya and Anir­ban, the oth­ers charged in­cluded seven Kash­miri stu­dents. None of the seven has been ar­rested. I would like to thank the po­lice and Modiji. The fil­ing of chargesheet af­ter 3 years, ahead of elec­tions, clearly shows it to be po­lit­i­cally mo­ti­vated. I trust the ju­di­ciary As the peo­ple have pre­pared their own chargesheet against this anti-peo­ple, anti-poor and com­mu­nal govt, this govt once again wants to de­flect at­ten­tion from its fail­ures by rak­ing up this is­sue just be­fore elec­tions. They need to bury these fail­ures un­der their lies This is a com­pletely bo­gus case in which ul­ti­mately ev­ery­one will be ac­quit­ted
