Is Kanhaiya Kumar the most sensitive prisoner currently lodged in Tihar jail? An India Today exclusive reveals that all possible safety precautions are in place. This includes Kanhaiya being placed in an isolation cell, and his food supplies being monitored by CCTV cameras.

Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested on charges of sedition last week. This has sparked off a big debate on the sedition law and the labelling of national and anti-national tag on students.

Tihar is considered to be the most secure prison in the country, and the unprecedented security provided to Kanhaiya is because of the scuffle that took place outside the Patiala House Court when the he was produced before the judicial magistrate. The JNUSU president is locked inside jail number three which is a separate cell. Along with the prison staff, a team of the Tamil Nadu police staff have been monitoring him round the clock. Specific orders have been given to the staff so that there is no lapse in the security of Kanhaiya.

Delhi Police had on Friday interrogated Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya together for the first time at a South Delhi police station in connection with the sedition case.
