According to sources, Delhi Police has sought custody of Kanhaiya Kumar on the ground that he has to be confronted with other two accused JNU students – Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya – and the metropolitan magistrate allowed them to quiz Kanhiaya till Friday.

The proceedings were held in a confidential location here due to security concerns.

Khalid and Bhattacharya, facing sedition charges for allegedly raising “anti-India” slogans are in police custody till March 27. The two Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students surrendered before police on Tuesday outside a gate of the university after a case against them was registered at Vasant Kunj police station.

Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested on February 12 after the event held on the university campus in commemoration of the death of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru who was executed in 2013. He allegedly shouted anti-India slogans at the event.
