New Delhi: The Delhi high court today gave 6-month interim bail to Kanhaiya Kumar, the Jawaharlal Nehru students’ union president who was arrested on sedition charge. Kanhaiya is currently lodged in the Tihar Jail under judicial custody.
The court gave relief to Kanhaiya by asking him to furnish a personal bond of Rs 10,000 and a surety of like amount. The high court made it clear that a JNU faculty member has to stand as surety for Kanhaiya.
Justice Pratibha Rani had on Monday reserved the order after over three hours of hearing on the bail plea of Kanhaiya, accused of raising anti-India slogans inside JNU campus during an event organised on February 9.
