New Delhi [India], Aug. 26 (ANI): The Patiala House Court on Friday granted regular bail to Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar and two other students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya in a case of sedition. The trio are being prosecuted by the Delhi Police for allegedly raising anti-India slogans on the JNU campus at a meeting organised on February 9 this year in memory of Afzal Guru, who was hanged in 2013 after his conviction in the Parliament attack case. Kanhaiya has assured in his bail application that he will adhere to every condition imposed by the court, adding that he has not violated any of the conditions that were imposed by the Delhi High Court while granting him interim bail on March 2. However, the high court while granting the interim bail, had warned Kanhaiya against participating actively or passively in any activity which may be termed as anti-national. (ANI)
