JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who was arrested February 12 from the JNU campus, on sedition charges, has claimed that he did not know Umar Khalid or Anirban Bhattacharya, now in Delhi Police custody, personally but was aware of their political affiliations.
He has allegedly claimed that he knew them only as fellow students and did not agree with their political ideology. A report earlier suggested
that Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya wanted to have Biryani and Momos from a dhaba in the university campus. The duo also demanded that they should be kept with Kanhaiya Kumar.
