JNU, LIVE: Accused students refuse to surrender; teachers demand dropping of sedition charge

New Delhi: As five JNU students, including Umar Khalid, who the police had been looking for in connection with a sedition case, on Sunday night surfaced on the campus, there is speculation whether the students will surrender or will they be arrested.

Meanwhile, Supreme Court directs all the concerned parties to share the reports on Patiala House court violence among themselves. Reports have been submitted before the court by Registrar Delhi HC, SC Panel, Delhi Police, Bar Council, Delhi HC Administrative committee, and counsel of accused. Next date of hearing is March 10.

We want a detailed discussion (in Parliament) on JNU issue. People should know what really happened there, the cause and the consequence of the act – Venkaiah Naidu,

JNU VC should take a courageous stand, get all charges dropped and remove the Registrar, says Anant, one of the accused students.

I am confident that my team is competent enough to deal with this matter – Bassi

They (accused students) should join the probe. If they are innocent, they should present evidence of their innocence. The world is full of opportunities and options – Bassi

Whenever we are handling any sensitive issue, we ensure that we do not disturb the law and order situation, says Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi.

University should take steps to get criminal charges like criminal conspiracy, sedition dropped against students – JNUTA

We will meet the VC and demand that frivolous charges against the accused students be dropped. Internal inquiry mechanism is needed, police should not be allowed to enter and arrest, says Ajay Patnaik of JNU teachers association
