NEW DELHI: JNU student Ashutosh joined investigation into the sedition case for the second time today, with the police questioning him together with Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya at south Delhi's R K Puram police station.            

He joined the probe around 12 PM today and was questioned in two rounds by two police teams, a source said. Ashutosh was questioned along with Khalid and Anirban, also charged with sedition at the same police station yesterday. Most of the queries revolved around their role as organisers of the February 9 event on the varsity's campus during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.  

Ashutosh, a former JNUSU president, was one of the six students wanted by the police after the arrest of student leader Kanhaiya Kumar.
