New Delhi :

Delhi Police's interrogation report of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union President Kanhaiya Kumar on Wednesday revealed certain shocking facts.

The JNUSU president Kumar was arrested by the Delhi Police on February 12 on charges of sedition and criminal conspiracy. He is currently in Delhi Police custody and being questioned for his role in the anti-national protests at the pro-Afzal event that was organised on the JNU campus on February 9.

According to reports, Kanhaiya came to know about February 9 cultural event on February 8 but was not aware of the agenda of the event organised by the DSU or that pro-Afzal and anti-India slogans were going to be raised at the event.

He added that as he was not well, he slept the whole day and woke up only when members of the All India Students Federation (AISF) came and woke him up in the evening.

Then he came to know that the administration had withdrawn permission for the event that was being organised by the DSU.

His associates told him that situation was turning tense and that clashes were building up between the ABVP and members of the DSU.

On February 9 evening, he reached the Sabarmati Dhaba at 5:30 PM which was the venue of the event organised by the DSU and sloganeering had already started.

Understanding the gravity of the situation, he addressed the crowd that had gathered and admitted that he made a fiery speech where he criticised RSS, Narendra Modi Government and party policies.

But he never mentioned anything which was of seditious nature and denied raising any of the anti-national slogans that can be seen in the video clips from JNU.

He even helped the cops identify the members of the DSU who were present in the DSU event at JNU and named DSU members Umar Khalid, Anirbhan Bhattacharya, Riazul Haq and Rubina Saifee among others as being the key organisers of the event.

Kanhaiya also claimed that many of those making the anti-India slogans were not from JNU but had come from outside JNU and that a clip where he is seen checking the identity cards of those who entered the venue is not from February 9, but from an earlier event at JNU.
