JNU committee recommends rustication of Kanhaiya Kumar, 4 others
NEW DELHIH (92 News) – An inquiry committee formed to look into the February 9 incident on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus has recommended the rustication of Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya and two other students for a certain period for “violating university rules”.
The five-member committee has also recommended imposing a fine on some students, including JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who were present at the event. However, a final call will be taken by the office of the Chief Proctor. A meeting in this connection has been scheduled for Friday.
Kumar, Khalid and Bhattacharya were arrested by the Delhi Police on sedition charge for allegedly raising slogans in support of the 2002 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. While Kumar was released on bail earlier this month, Bhattacharya and Khalid are still in judicial custody.
