People also queued up outside Kumar’s hostel Brahmaputra with ‘dhols’ and ‘daflis’ to accompany him during the march.

Meanwhile, two separate meetings of the students union and JNU teachers association were underway to decide the future course of action. Kanhaiya is expected to address the gathering after the march.

However, the university administration maintained the report of the high-level committee has not been submitted to it yet.

“The five-member panel had a deadline till 12 am today. The varsity will take a call based on the recommendations of the panel,” a senior JNU official said.

Shouting “victory” slogans for Kanhaiya, students later marched from Sabarmati Dhaba, during the night hours.

The JNUSU president was arrested in connection with an event on the campus during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.

Five other students — Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya, Rama Naga, Anant Prakash and Ashutosh Kumar — had gone in hiding since then but resurfaced on the campus 10 days later.

While Umar and Anirban surrendered before the police, the remaining three refused to do so but maintained that they are open to questioning by police as and when needed.

Kanhaiya was granted interim bail for six months by the Delhi High Court.
