In an open endorsement for the Tukde Tukde gang the Congress has invited those named in the 2016 JNU Sedition case to an event to remember Mahatma Gandhi on his 72nd martyrdom anniversary on Monday.

The All India Congress Committee has invited Kanhaiya Kumar and Shehla Rashid as speakers for the event.

Congress leaders Priyanka Chaturvedi, Manish Tewari, KTS Tulsi will be present in the event. Manoj Jha from the RJD will also be a part of the event.

The Delhi Police on January 14 had named Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya as main-accused in the 2016 JNU sedition case, along with seven other Kashmir residents from JNU, Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Millia Islamia.

Kanhaiya Kumar has been named as one of the ten main-accused in the chargesheet.

Apart from the ten main-accused, 36 persons have been kept in column 12 of the chargesheet which is for people who have been interrogated but not chargesheeted.

Just a few days after the Delhi Police filed its 1200-page chargesheet in the 2016 Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) sedition case, Republic TV accessed videos from the chargesheet which proved that anti-national slogans were indeed being chanted at the event.

A total of four videos have been accessed, and one of them has damning evidence of the accused individuals shouting anti-India slogans.

In this very particular footage, a group of around 50 people could be seen protesting against the death sentence handed to 2001 Parliament attack culprit Afzal Guru.

"....ham kya chahte, azaadi. Ham kya chahte, azaadi. Afzal tere khoon se, inqelaab ayega. Afzal tere khoon se, inqelaab ayega. Afzal ham sharminda hai, tere kaatil zinda. Afzal ham sharminda hai, tere kaatil zinda hai," the protestors could be heard as saying.

Anti-national slogans were also chanted in the video accessed by Republic TV.

"Bharat tere tukde honge, Inshallah, Inshallah. Bharat tere tukde honge, Inshallah, Inshallah,"
