Amit Jani, the president of UP Navnirman Sena, who has threatened to kill JNU Students’ Union President Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid for their ‘anti-national’ remarks, has a reason to do so.

Jani had claimed that a JNU student told him that weapons could be smuggled in through the Route No. 615 DTC bus, which originated at Minto Road and went right inside the campus, terminating near Purvanchal Hostel. The students, as per his claims, mislead him and informed the Delhi Police about the plan.
Ever since the Delhi Police recovered the weapon and cartridges, Jani has been updating the media on the progress in the case and the investigations.
Jani had earlier been booked for vandalising Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati’s statues in Uttar Pradesh and has also attacked the offices of the Shiv Sena in several parts of the state following attacks on non-Maharashtrians in Mumbai.
