New Delhi: Kanhaiya Kumar will be meeting Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi today at 11:30 pm. Kanhaiya Kumar is a leader of the All India Student Federation (AISF), the student wing of the Communist Party of India (CPI).
He was elected president of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union in 2015. On February 9 2016, he was arrested and allegedly charged with sedition on the charges of raising anti-India slogans in a student rally against the 2013 hanging of Mohammed Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri separatist convicted over the 2001 Indian Parliament attack.
He was released on interim bail on March 2 2016, since no video evidence of Kumar participating in anti-national slogans has been presented by the police.
