New Delhi, Jan 10: The Delhi Police will soon file a charge sheet in the sedition case against former JNU students' union president Kanhaiya Kumar and other activists, including Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, Delhi Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik said.

Kumar, Khalid and Bhattacharya were arrested in 2016 in a sedition case for allegedly organising an event in Jawaharlal Nehru University campus against the hanging of Parliament-attack mastermind Afzal Guru.

The arrests had triggered a huge controversy with the opposition slamming the police for "working at the behest of the ruling BJP".

"The case is in stage of finalisation. The investigation was complex as the team also had to visit other states for taking statements. The charge sheet will be filed soon," Patnaik said.
