Trouble ahead for Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid as Special Cell finalises draft chargesheet in JNU anti-national slogan case

December 22, 2018

Almost three years after an FIR was lodged in the case of anti-national slogans that were raised during an event in the JNU campus, the Delhi Police’s Special Cell has finalised the draft chargesheet in this case. It has reportedly named Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya as the main accused. Kanhaiya Kumar who later became a hero of the leftist liberal cabal was the JNU students’ union president at the time. The police have included eight others in the draft chargesheet. It has been sent to the public prosecutor for vetting and is expected to be filed in the Patiala House Court soon.

According to the Indian Express, a senior police officer said,“Police have found concrete evidence against the eight others, all hailing from Kashmir… two of them are students at JNU, two at Jamia Millia Islamia, one at Aligarh Muslim University, one is a Muradnagar-based doctor and two are students.” According to police sources, the Kashmiri students have been identified after questioning Khalid and recording the statements of other students. An officer linked to the case said, “Police collected evidence after scanning the social media profiles of some of the students. One of them had posted a slogan raised at the event on Facebook. Most of these students were asked to mobilise people for the event.”

According to police sources, the draft chargesheet also mentions the name of 32 others, including the former JNU students’ union vice-president, Shehla Rashid. But the sources also added that “sufficient evidence has not been found” against them. The chargesheet has been delayed since forensic reports on the data from laptops and mobile phones were received only recently. According to the officer, “in one of the reports, the Central Forensic Science Laboratory, CBI, found that raw video footage of the event was authentic.” This seems like a major breakthrough which can help in establishing the case against the accused.
