Background A FIR was registered on February 11, 2016 against unidentified persons for allegedly shouting anti-India slogans during an event on the university campus on February 9, 2016 to commemorate the hanging of Parliament-attack mastermind Afzal Guru. In January 2019, a chargesheet in the case was filed before the Court of Metropolitan Magistrate, naming the above accused persons. The chargesheet alleges that Kumar had incited the mob to shout anti-India slogans and contains CCTV footage, mobile footage and documentary evidence. The chargesheet was however rejected by the Magistrate on January 19, 2019, citing lack of requisite sanctions.

They have been charged with offences under sections 124A (sedition), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 465, 471 (forgery), 143, 149 (unlawful assembly), 147 (rioting) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of IPC.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
