New Delhi, Feb 22: As students allege that police in plain clothes roam around the JNU campus keeping a watch on the students who have returned to the campus, a lot of tension is expected during the day.

The Delhi police had launched a manhunt against some students stating that they were facing sedition charges after allegedly shouting anti-national slogans during an event condemning the hanging of Afzal Guru on February 9th at the JNU.

Delhi police sources tell OneIndia that they will tread carefully and will seek out all help from the administration of the university where these students are concerned. "We have to question them as there is an ongoing investigation," the officer also added.

We will surrender:

The students who returned to the campus, meanwhile, have said that they will surrender if the police comes to the campus. "However, we want the entire proceeding to be recorded. We hope that the tapes this time are not doctored," the vice president of the JNU students union, Shehla Rashid Shora said while adding that they were glad that their friends have come
back.

Meanwhile, today is expected to be a hectic day at the university as the police will look to question the students. The Delhi police have been criticised heavily for entering into the JNU campus and arresting Kanaihya Kumar the JNU student leader. The police say that they will need the help of the administration in this regard. We are in talks with the administration on the issue, the Delhi police say.
