New Delhi, Feb 27: In a ground breaking revelation, police has said that the co-accused of Kanhaiya Kumar-Umar Khalid and Anirba Bhattacharya- have been interrogated face-to-face with the former. However, they have maintained that their action on Feb 9 was independent of Kumar.
Showing little familiarity with Kumar, the duo clarified their positions and said that they have not chanted anti-national slogans.
A source said, "In both these rounds of interrogation, the duo did not seem to be too familiar with Kumar. Their responses to our queries as well as their versions of the incident focused more on individual participation and what they themselves did on February 9 rather than any co-ordination with each other," said the source.
Khalid and Bhattacharya were questioned about Kumar's speech at Ganga Dhaba and asked them whether there was anything seditious about it, to which the duo answered n the negative.
