They are among six students – three of them have not been arrested – who are facing sedition charges for allegedly shouting anti-India slogans at a February 9 event commemorating 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

The decision comes two weeks after fellow JNU student and sedition accused Kanhaiya Kumar was granted bail under similar terms.

Additional Sessions Judge Reetesh Singh said each student must furnish a bail bond of Rs 25,000 and an equal amount in surety.

Celebrating their release, JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar said that the bail proves the country has still not been completely saffronised. He further said, “No matter what happens, our unity should not be broken.”



The duo had sought bail on grounds of parity with co-accused Kanhaiya Kumar, JNUSU president who recently got bail in the case.

Claiming innocence, the duo had also said that they have already been in custody for more than 20 days and they are not even required for custodial interrogation.

They had also told the court that allegations levelled against them of raising “anti-national slogans” hailing Afzal Guru are “false” and that they should be granted bail on these grounds.
