New Delhi: The Delhi government has given the nod to prosecute Kanhaiya Kumar, the former JNU Students Union (JNUSU) president.
It has sanctioned the Delhi Police Special Cell to probe the sedition case against him.
Kumar was accused of issuing seditious slogans. The reports said the involvement of Umar Khalid, Anirban, Aakib Hussain, Mujib, Amar Gul, Bashrat Ali and Khalid Basir, in this case, will also be probed by the Delhi Police Special Cell.
A charge sheet was filed in connection with the case on January 14, 2019. The then members of JNUSU were accused of raising anti-national slogans in the JNU campus on February 9, 2016.
This direction was issued after the police told the court that the permission to probe the allegations against Kumar and the others were pending with the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD).
