A few minutes before JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar left for the Patiala House Courts, he requested the police to give him a piece of paper. He wrote a letter to Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Prem Nath in which he said he has faith in India’s Constitution and does not support anti-national activities. Kanhaiya wrote that he opposed the anti-national slogans that were raised on the JNU campus.
“I believe in the Indian Constitution and I will abide by it. I also believe in India’s unity and diversity and do not support any unconstitutional activities,” he wrote.

He added that the incident of February 9 was unfortunate one and criticises it. “After I went through all videos gathered through different sources, I realised that some people in JNU and some from outside were sloganeering which was unconstitutional and I don’t support it. I appeal to everyone to not to breach the peace in the university, society as well as in India,” he wrote.
Delhi police commissioner B S Bassi said, “I have been informed by my DCP South that Kanhaiya has showed his faith in the Indian Constitution and appealed to other students not to indulge in unconstitutional activity.”
