Man Thrashed For Showing Black Flag To Kanhaiya


Patna: There was utter ruckus in an event organised for JNU leader Kanhaiya Kumar in Patna. JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar’s speech was interrupted by a youth showing a black flag and raising Bharat Mata Ki Jai slogan, on Sunday.

The man was brutally thrashed and beaten up by Kanhaiya’s supporters. Kanhaiya Kumar was addressing a gathering of students (including old JNU students) in SK Memorial Bhawan in Patna. Meanwhile, the police have detained two men in this case.

Kanhaiya who hails from Begusarai district of Bihar is on a two-day tour of his home state and met both Nitish Kumar and RJD president Lalu Prasad Yadav over the weekend.

Kumar was arrested on the charge of sedition in February in connection with an event at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) commemorating the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. It was alleged that ‘anti-national’ slogans were raised during that event by Kanhaiya and other participants.The Delhi High Court in March granted him interim bail for six months.
