NEW DELHI: The police custody of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, who are facing sedition charges, was on Saturday extended by two days.

The Delhi court had on Wednesday sent the duo to three-day police custody, even though the police had asked for a seven-day custody.

Umar and Anirban had earlier moved the High Court seeking protection in order to surrender but the court, while directing the students to surrender, adjourned the hearing for protection till Wednesday.

Refusing to grant interim protection against arrest for a day, the Delhi High Court had asked Umar and Anirban to inform it about the date, time and place where they wish to surrender.

JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar is already behind bars in Tihar Jail, again for sedition.
