New Delhi, Feb 23: It is rather surprising why the Delhi Police is not arresting the JNU students who resurfaced from hiding. Although they were being frantically traced and tracked by the police, not excluding questioning journalists who were covering the story.
Interestingly, when they resurfaced, the police did not storm the campus and arrest them.
According to the sources, the reluctance may have stemmed from the fact that the police has identified eight other outsiders who began to first shout anti-India slogans. Sources revealed,"While these five students were present at the meeting, it is not certain whether they actually shouted the slogans."
While the students demand that the police come and arrest them and that they would not surrender, police is in no hurry to do so and is waiting for the hearing of Kanhaiya Kumar to get completed in Delhi High Court today.
If the HC criticized them, it would take the same strategy for the others too. That way, they can review their move. So, police stood guarding the gate.
Meanwhile, the students' union (JNUSU) and teachers' association (JNUTA) appealed to the VC not to let the police enter the JNU premises.
