New Delhi, Feb 26: They are in jail and are being probed for sedition. It may take a while for Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, students at the JNU to get used to the fact that they are in custody on very serious charges.
Missing the life in the university where they had access to biriyani, momos and cigarettes, the duo did make a pitch before the Delhi police to provide them all of that only to be countered with a strong NO.
No preferential treatment to anyone say the Delhi police. This is a serious investigation concerning alleged anti national activity. Whether Khalid or Bhattacharya, we will not pamper anyone.
The rules are the same for everyone, a Delhi police official informed OneIndia. Apparently they were missing the food that they would eat on the JNU campus.
Yes Khalid did request for momos, but we refused. Bhattacharya asked for cigarettes and biryani, but it was turned down, the officer also noted.
What have they revealed?
All the the three- Khalid, Bhattacharya and Kanaiyha Kumar have denied raising anti national slogans. The police then showed them the video clips of those who were raising the Bharat ki barbadi (destruction of India) slogans.
All of them said they do not know these persons. They could be outsiders and we do not know who brought them in, the trio told the Delhi police. However there are some contradictions. Bhattacharya says there were slogans raised but Khalid claims he never heard anything of that sort.
The Delhi police is now analysing the statements given by all the three. We will compare them. We are sure that they are aware of how the outsiders entered into the campus. We are investigating that the officer said.
