Delhi govt gives nod to prosecute Kanhaiya

The Delhi government has given its approval to police to prosecute former Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar and others in a sedition case for allegedly raising anti-India slogans during an event inside the university campus in February 2016. The approval was awaited for a long time. On January 14 last year, the police had filed a chargesheet in the court against Kumar and others, including former JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, stating that they were leading a procession and supported the seditious slogans raised on the campus during an event on February 9, 2016. The police had at the same time filed a request for prosecution sanction from the government.
