A Delhi court on Wednesday sent JNU student Sharjeel Imam, arrested on sedition charges, to a five-day custody of Delhi Police Crime Branch. Imam was arrested on Tuesday for making allegedly inflammatory speeches at the Jamia Millia Islamia University here and in Aligarh.
He reached Delhi on Wednesday and was produced in the Patiala House court. Some lawyers raised slogans against him and made posters calling him a 'traitor', demanding that he be hanged.
Heavy security was deployed outside the courts premises with about 20 police personnel including the CRPF officials.
One of the lawyers said, "We Are here to protest against those who talk about breaking the country. All the lawyers are united against such traitors. He does not deserve to be outside jail. Strict action should be taken against him."
