A court in Begusarai Wednesday admitted a case against Adarsh Sharma, who claims to be president of Purvanchal Sena, and Kuldeep Vishnoi, head of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, Badaun for issuing posters announcing rewards for killing JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar. Police arrested Sharma Monday.
Kanhaiya’s grandfather, Balkrishna Singh, a resident of Bihat, filed the complaint in the chief judicial magistrate court against Sharma and Vishnoi. Singh’s lawyer, Vijay Maharaj, said, “The court did not take any time in admitting the case.”
Kumar’s younger brother Prince Singh said, “Though there was immediate action by police, we wanted to file a case here against the two persons. We are deeply hurt at such threatening posters and are concerned about Kanhaiya’s security.”
He added his parents were very worried about Kanhaiya’s safety. Posters announcing a reward of Rs 11 lakh for anyone who “shoots” Kanhaiya were seen at various places in Delhi last week. They carried Sharma’s name and mobile number.
