An alert was issued by the Delhi Police on Friday following a tweet by a parody account asking Pakistan to support JNU student protesters. The police in its alert asked people not to get carried away by such seditious anti-national rhetoric.

Earlier in the day, police arrested JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar in a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy for holding an anti-national event inside the university premises. He was later sent to 3-day police custody by the court.

Taking strong exception to the anti-national slogans raised inside JNU campus at an event to commemorate the death anniversary of Parliament attack mastermind Afzal Guru, Home Minister Rajnath Singh also warned of “strongest possible” action against those involved in such acts.
