Lookout notice for 3 JNU students

The Delhi Police on Saturday issued lookout circulars for three Jawaharlal Nehru University students allegedly involved in a controversial campus event on February 9.

A circular letter is used by authorities to check whether a person traveling is wanted by police.

Umar Khalid, Anirban and Aswathi are alleged to have been part of protests on the university campus against 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru’s hanging.
A case of sedition was registered against the event organisers and JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested on February 12.

All students involved in the event have been absconding since Kumar’s arrest.
 The investigators tracked their call data records till the day their mobile phones were found to be switched off.

A police team also went to Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor district and asked a relative of Khalid to join the probe. Sadiq Naqvi arrived at Vasant Vihar police station along with his lawyer Natalia Shibli at around 11 am on Saturday.

“Sadiq was questioned by special branch,” the officer added. Sadiq was at his father’s house in Bijnor when the police team reached there. Sadiq was also Khalid’s classmate in Delhi University.
