Delhi Police on Monday questioned Adarsh Sharma, who claimed to be the president of ‘Purvanchal Sena’, in connection with the case registered over sticking posters in the city announcing a reward of Rs 11 lakh for anyone who “shoots dead” JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar.

Sharma was questioned at a police station in New Delhi district, a senior police official confirmed without divulging further details.

On Saturday, posters announcing Rs 11 lakh reward for shooting dead Kumar were seen stuck on a wall near Press Club of India and bus stops and metro stations in New Delhi district.

The poster said “whosoever shoots JNU Students’ Union president and seditionist Kanhaiya will be rewarded Rs 11 lakh on the behalf of Purvanchal Sena.”

The posters carried the mobile number and name of Adarsh Sharma, president of one Purvanchal Sena.

On the same day, the police registered a case of defacement of property in connection with the matter and questioned one person, who was allegedly involved in sticking the posters on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday.

    I am sure the Delhi Police would have given this guy a warm welcome and made him comfortable, after all these goons are supported by the center. Instead arresting and putting him behind bars and filing an FIR, they questioned him ?? Talk anything about the BJP/RSS and you are locked up and beaten. Threaten or incite others to kill is let go off easily. What age are we living in ?? Shame on Delhi Police and the Center !

    Is Defacement Act to victimise a few only? There was a reward even to kill or capture Osama-bin-laden?
