A new video, purportedly showing students from Kolkata’s Jadavpur University with pro-independence chants has emerged.
The video posted by the news agency ANI has students chanting slogans similar to those allegedly chanted by students on the campus of Jawaharlal Nehru University on 9 February.
Jantakareporter.com is unable to confirm the authenticity of this video.
This is how the chanting goes.
Azaadi ham cheen ke lenge,
Arre Afzal Bole… Azaadi (chorus)
Geelani bole.. Azaadi (chorus)
Jo Tum Naa doge.. Azaadi (chorus)
To Chheen ke lenge… Azaadi (chorus)
However, unlike Delhi there were no reports of police excesses in Kolkata.
Delhi police, which reports to the BJP government at the Centre, was nimble-footed in its crackdown arrested several students, most notably the students’ union leader Kanhaiya Kumar on charges of sedition.
