NEW DELHI: Home Minister Rajnath Singh today washed his hands off on the ongoing probe by the Delhi Police on the alleged anti-India activities in Jawaharlal Nehru University last month.

"Whatever the Delhi Police has to do, they are doing. I have nothing to say on that," he told reporters here when asked to comment about the investigation being conducted by the Delhi Police on the JNU row.

JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar and two others, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, were arrested for allegedly raising anti-India slogans at an event organised on February 9 against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

While Kumar, who was slapped with the sedition charge, was released from jail yesterday, Khalid and Bhattacharya are in judicial custody.
