JNU row: Delhi Police keeps tab on Kanhaiya over security reasons

Varsity authorities told to inform police about his whereabouts.

New Delhi: Mindful of a possible threat to the security of the JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar, the Delhi Police has asked the university authorities to inform them about the student leader’s movements outside the campus and nature of his visits, request which has reportedly been accepted by the JNU authorities.

In a letter to the JNU authorities, DCP (South) Prem Nath wrote that the SHO of Vasant Kunj (North) Police Station should be informed well in time about “the movements/visits of the student leader outside the campus, including nature of visit and travel mode so that necessary security/ preventive measures may be taken to prevent any untoward incident”.

The move comes in view of the court’s directive after the attack on Kanhaiya at Patiala House court complex, which said police must ensure that none of the students suffer even a scratch.
