New Delhi, Feb 16: The Delhi police probing the JNU row case has launched a hunt for several students who are on the run. Several students have been identified by the Delhi police alleged to have taken part in an event to protest the hanging of Afzal Guru.

Delhi Police Commissioner, B S Bassi says that they have had a close look at the clippings of the events that took place last week and have identified several students who were part of the protest and shouting anti India slogans.


The Delhi police, which sought an extension of JNU student leader Kanaihya Kumar's custody say that the charges of sedition are irrefutable in nature. The clippings clearly show that Kumar and several other students had in fact raised anti India slogans.

The police are also probing a meeting that had taken place prior to the event in which it was decided to raise slogans protesting the hanging of Afzal Guru. The police were also in the process of identifying the organisers of the event and even arrested S A R Geelani, former Delhi university teacher this morning on charges of sedition and criminal conspiracy.

The Delhi police which is also contemplating handing over the probe to its special cell says that many students are still absconding. A man hunt has been launched for these students who will be arrested soon. Meanwhile Kumar who is being questioned in custody has denied that he ever raised anti India slogans. Since day one he has been maintaining that sedition charges were falsely slapped on him.
