Jawaharlal Nehru University student Umar Khalid along with four other students surfaced at the University complex late Sunday night, where he addressed fellow students outside the administration block.

The Delhi Police, who have issued a Lookout Circular for the five students, arrived at the campus but were not allowed to enter as they require permission from the Vice Chancellor. “We will wait outside the campus if they want to surrender,” a police officer said.

The five students are facing charges of sedition for allegedly raising what the Delhi Police terms ‘anti-national’ slogans during a protest event held against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

Here’s Khalid’s address to his fellow students.

          Pressutes, as usual, are projecting a terrorist as a hero.

            You Umar Khalid are worst than a terrorist. Terrorists kill people and run.get killed . You incite hatred and violence. You wil suffer pain for 50 years both in body and spirit until you die.
