The February 9 incident triggered a chain of events leading to a nationwide uproar over how the universities have become political battlegrounds where anti-national activities were being encouraged.

Umar, Kanhaiya and Anirban were booked on sedition charges and put in prison. They were released on bail in March.

Fines of Rs.10,000 and Rs.20,000 have been slapped on 12 other students involved in the February 9 sloganeering as well. Some students have been asked to stay off the campus.

Kanhaiya and Umar claim they never raised anti-India slogans.
