JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar told police during initial interrogation that he did not endorse anti-national activities. According to an interrogation report accessed by Express, when asked whether ‘anti-national activities’ should be allowed on campus, Kumar said, “no”. When asked, “Is it correct that the posters in respect of the cultural programme dated 09/02/16 against judicial killing of Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhat were pasted in JNU campus?”, he said, “Yes”.
Kumar said, “... some students were discussing blocking of a road near Sabarmati hostel by members of ABVP when another group was carrying out some cultural programme.” He saw another group taking out a march. “Both groups started abusing and hitting each other. I tried to intervene... The other group began marching towards Ganga Dhaba, but ABVP members tried to stop it. This continued till both groups reached Ganga Dhaba. It was only after police intervention that both groups were separated,” he said, stressing no anti-national sloganeering took place there.
