Lucknow: A Bajrang Dal activist, Hemant Singh, has filed a fresh sedition case against JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar in Bulandshahar district for allegedly disrespecting the Indian Army.
The Bulandshahar Session Court will take up the matter for hearing on March 28. The case relates to the speech that Kanh-aiya made on March 8 on International Women’s Day in which he allegedly claimed “our soldiers rape women and commit atrocities in Kashmir and the North East”.
The Bajrang Dal activist said in his petition that the remarks were highly insensitive and offensive. The activist told local reporters that the UP police initially refused to register his complaint and he had to approach the court for initiating action against Kanhaiya Kumar.
The petitioner has also submitted video clips of Kanhaiya Kumar making the objectionable “false statements” as proof.
It may be recalled that Kanhaiya Kumar who was earlier arrested on charges of sedition was released from Tihar jail on March 3. The Delhi Court granted him interim bail for six months on the condition that he would co-operate with police in the probe against him....
