The Indian Express has accessed the First Information Report (FIR) filed by the Delhi Police in the sedition case against JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar.

Kanhaiya was arrested by the police last week in connection with an event at the university in which anti-national slogans and those in favour of terrorist Afzal Guru were allegedly raised. The controversy has led to huge students protests both at the university as well as in several cities across the country.

Following the event, Home Minister Rajnath Singh had said that any kind of sloganeering against the country would not be tolerated.

Here’s the full FIR filed by the Delhi Police.

    What IE wants to show to the readers?Filing of a FIR is normal process but why to highlight it and for what purpose?An anti national crime has been committed and Police has to take action, it so simple but for some unknown reasons,(may be to find fault)let is being done.

      As Mohan's comment spells I also think Kanhaiya Kumar is not the master brain ; earlier I heard his speech clip by which its almost clear his speech is about a well set formula meant to criticize ruling party where as common kind points covered by him in his speech are age old problems and do not concern BJP alone nor any other the points raised by him are about general shortcomings in Indian systems. Kanhaiya Kumar targeting ruling party is clearly a well prepared propaa speech there is nothing like claims of JNU favoring that intellectuals at Universities are meant to show descent ; what JNU did is nothing constructive as such and slogans like ...kitni ye maaroge kitni wo maaroge, ghar mei wo mileinge is favoring the Anti India propaa machinery only none else... Slogans like Hindustan murdabad and Hindustan ki barbaadi tak jung mean the same and the w media section that supports propaa akin such is only encouraging the Anti India machinery ; so is act of opposition parties that are observed to be supporting wrongful propaa.

          In a democratic setup the Govt has many limitation and hence cannot take hasty decision. The dates for the elections in five states are nearing. If the public takes law in their hands then it will create Kejriwal style Anarchy. The Govt should not release the JNUSU president from jail without adequate security. Kanhaiya Kumar is not the master brain who had planned everything. He is just a pawn in the game. He is either brainwashed or paid well for acting as per the script. The main Strategists are sitting safely elsewhere and enjoying life. If anything happens to his life, then Modi and NDA govt will get all the blame like what happened in Hyderabad University. The Govt should be more Vigilant regarding the activities of anti-national Conspirators and the political vultures. Their most powerful weapon is paid media and paid comments. Most comments in this forum are paid
