Just a few days after the Delhi Police filed its 1200-page chargesheet in the 2016 Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) sedition case, Republic TV has accessed videos from the chargesheet which proves 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.
Following a brief stoppage, they got started again, and this time around, shouted slogans which clearly proved that anti-national slogans were chanted at the venue.
"Bharat tere tukde honge, Inshallah, Inshallah. Bharat tere tukde honge, Inshallah, Inshallah," could be heard in the video accessed by Republic TV.
In the chargesheet filed by the Delhi Police earlier this month, they had mentioned the following anti-national slogans were chanted at the JNU following which sedition charges were leveled against them.
The video evidence, which has now been accessed by Republic TV, had been authenticated by Forensic labs, the police had stated, and statements had been taken from students, security guards and others.
The footage was accessed by Republic Bharat's associate editor Alok Verma.
