Delhi Police asks JNU to keep it informed about Kanhaiya’s movement

To provide foolproof security to Kanhaiya Kumar, Delhi Police has asked University authorities to inform them about the JNUSU president  Kumar’s movements outside the campus and nature of his visits.
In a letter to Jawaharlal University , DCP (South) Prem Nath wrote that the SHO of Vasant Kunj (North) Police Station, which has the campus under its jurisdiction, should be informed well in time about “the movements/visits of Kumar outside the campus, including nature of visit and travel mode so that necessary security/preventive measures may be taken to prevent any untoward incident”.

A police source said the move comes in view of the court’s directive after the attack on Kumar at Patiala House court complex on February 17, which said police must ensure that none of the students arrested in connection with the sedition case suffer even a scratch.

A police team will be moving around with Kumar every time he moves out of the varsity’s campus.

When Kanhaiya was released from jail on conditional bail, Delhi Police  deployed multiple escort teams to make sure that he reaches the campus safe.
Kumar was arrested on February 12 in a case of sedition registered for raising anti-national slogans in an event  held on February 9 inside the JNU campus, to protest against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

The FIR was registered two days later taking suo motu cognisance of a video clip obtained from a Hindi news channel.
