JNU Sedition Case: Court To Consider Chargesheet On Jan 19

A Delhi court today i.e., January 15, 2019, has fixed January 19, 2019, for consideration of chargesheet against former Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Student Union President Kanhaiya Kumar and others in the 2016 JNU sedition case.

The court put up the matter for hearing on the date as Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Sherawat was on leave today.

The Delhi Police had on January 14, 2019, filed a chargesheet at Patiala House Courts against Kanhaiya Kumar and others, saying he was leading a procession and supported seditious slogans raised on the varsity campus in February 2016.

Police also charged former JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya for offences punishable under Sections 124A, 143, 147, 149, 120B and 323 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860.
