Slapped with sedition charge, JNUSU leader Kanhaiya Kumar today said he is an Indian who has full faith in judiciary and the Constitution, a statement the police latched on to say that it will not oppose his bail.

"I have said earlier too. I am an Indian. I have full faith in the Constitution as well as the judiciary of the country," Kumar told metropolitan magistrate Lovleen when he was produced for remand proceedings.

The Delhi police have released a copy of a statement purportedly written by Kanhaiya Kumar.

The letter signed by the student leader says, “I believe in the Indian constitution and it is my dream that it is implemented in letter and spirit. I believe in the unity and integrity of India. I do not support any thing unconstitutional that is contrary to the sovereignty of the nation.

On February 9, 2016 an unfortunate incident occurred in our university which I strongly condemn. After watching a video obtained from multiple sources, it has come to be known that some students of JNU and some outsiders are raising unconstitutional slogans. But with my constitutional obligation, I don’t support these slogans and I also want to appeal to all of you that in this regard, the peace in the country, society and universities should not be disrupted.”           

Kumar, who has been booked under sedition charge in connection with an event in JNU where anti-national slogans were allegedly raised, last week, has been arrested by Delhi Police. He has been remanded to judicial custody till March 2.
