In a massive development, following Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and 8 others being named as main-accused in the 2016 JNU sedition case on Monday, Republic TV has accessed the chargesheet filed in the case by the Delhi Police, which is to be taken up on January 19 by a Delhi court.

The chargesheet, accessed by Republic TV's Atul Krishnan, makes the following mentions about what the main-accused were doing:

'Umar and Anirban were speaking of Azadi of Kashmir', it says, adding that 'they were trying to excite disaffection towards the idea of India.' Not only this, but in 'advocating terrorist acts of Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhatt', 'they were trying to incite hatred, contempt and disaffection towards the government.'. And on the slogans, a list of which was accessed by Republic TV and is available below, the chargesheet says 'Slogans like Bharat tere tukde tukde honge indicate nefarious and sinister objectives.'

Further, laying bare the deep conspiracy, the chargesheet names and details the evidence against the 10 main-accused, as well as the 36 persons against whom there is insufficient evidence, over the incidence of shouting of anti-India slogans during an event on the JNU campus on February 9, 2016, to commemorate the hanging of 2001 Parliament-attack mastermind Afzal Guru. 

Here's an account of the evidence in the chargesheet against the main-accused:

Earlier, sources had confirmed to Republic TV the anti-national slogans that had been raised on the campus that day - 

  • 'Indian Army pe halla bol
  • 'CRPF pe halla bol'
  • 'Rashtriya Rifles pe halla bol'
  • 'Afzal har ghar se niklega'
  • 'Lad kar lenge Azadi'
  • 'Bharat ko do ragda ragda'
  • 'Kashmir ki azadi tak jung rahegi jari'

  • 'Bharat ke iss mulk ko ek jhatka aur do'
  • 'Bandook ke bal pe lenge azadi'
  • 'Hum kya chahte - Azadi'
  • 'Hum leke rahenge - Azadi'
  • 'Bharat tere tukde honge Inshallah'
  • 'Hum cheen ke lenge azadi, ladke lenge azadi'

The Delhi Police's investigation concluded that the video footage from the JNU campus was genuine and it is on the basis of this footage, which was forensically authenticated by the CSFL, and statements from students and security guards, that those accused have been chargesheeted.

Ten witnesses served as eye-witnesses.

Metropolitan Magistrate Sumit Anand put up the chargesheet for consideration before a competent court on Tuesday. 

The accused have been charged with offences under sections 124A (sedition), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 465 (punishment for forgery), 471 (using as genuine a forged document or electronic record), 143 (punishment for being a member of an unlawful assembly), 149 (being a member of an unlawful assembly), 147 (punishment for rioting) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). 

The chargesheet also contains CCTV footage, mobile footage and documentary evidence and was brought to the Patiala House Court in a big metal box carried by two persons. 

The said event dates back to February 9, 2016, when a programme was organised at the JNU premises to protest against the hanging of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhat, during which anti-national slogans were raised. Kanhaiya Kumar and others were arrested, however, they were later released on bail by the Delhi High Court. A case was registered on February 11, 2016 under sections 124A and 120B of the IPC against unidentified persons at the Vasant Kunj (North) police station, following complaints from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Maheish Girri and the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).
