New Delhi, Feb 26: The Delhi police is unlikely to seek the further remand of JNU student leader Kanaihya Kumar who was arrested on sedition charges.
Kumar was remanded in police custody for a day following a plea by the Delhi police that they needed his custodial interrogation.
His custodial interrogation was sought after two others Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya surrendered before the Delhi police.
The police said that in the wake of the two surrendering it was necessary to question Kumar once again. The Delhi police questioned all three and are currently comparing the answers they had given.
Kumar was arrested on February 12 he was in police custody for five days. On February 17th the court had remanded him in judicial custody until March 2.
The police say that they have got the answers from Kumar. However Kumar denied raising anti national slogans and pointed to the job of outsiders.
The police say that most of the answers given by the three accused do not tally. This would require further investigation. We will continue to question Khalid and Bhattacharya who are in custody.
The police is also in the process of issuing notice to two lecturers in the JNU and three other students on the allegation that they helped the students wanted by the police abscond.
