Kanhaiya Kumar granted 6 months of interim bail

JNU students’ leader Kanhaiya Kumar has been granted interim bail for six months on the surety of Rs 10, 000 by Delhi High Court.

Delhi Police had opposed his bail plea.

The High Court has disposed off the petition saying that it will entertain new petition only if there’s new evidence.

Shailendra Babbar, Special Public Prosecutor, told reporters that said that it will decide the next course of action only after it studies and analyses the order.

Kanhaiya will be released after he furnishes his bail bond before the magistrate court, said Delhi police.

Kanhaiya’s lawyer, Vrinda Grover, said that the evidence available in public domain was not presented.

She told NDTV, “We welcome this order. Clearly Kanhaiya had no role to play in that. Hope police does the better job. Once the bail order is issues, bond will be filed before an appropriate court and hopefully he will be released by tomorrow.”

Kanhaiya was being represented a group of high-profile lawyers led by Kapil Sibal.

Kanhaiya’s father slammed the BJP-led central government for forcing his ‘innocent son to go through ‘this ordeal’ because of his ‘communist ideologies.’

‘My son is not a traitor,” said his father.

On Monday, the High Court had rapped Delhi police on filing sedition charges against Kanhaiya.

During the hearing of the JNU students’ union leader, Kanhaiya Kumar, the bench of Justice Pratibha Rani asked, “Do you know what sedition is. Was there any CCTV footage of entire incident? If report is based on TV channel footage, is there any other evidence.”

  1. GOOD AT LAST HE IS REALEASED ON BAIL BUT HE KNOWS WHO WAS ARRANGING AFZALGURU DAY> HE SHOULD BRING TRUTH TO THE MASSES OF INDIA

  2. Extremely disappointed with the judgement. I had asked everybody to wait till the court’s judgement.
    Now the hon. Judge has made more room for noisy debates. Everyone is free to interpret the judgement in his or her own way.
    She has added fuel to the “My Nationalism -vs- Your Nationalism” fire.
    No comment on whether the videos were ‘doctored’ or not and more importantly the role of Police.
