New Delhi, Publish Date: Jul 7 2018

The JNU’s high-level inquiry committee has upheld Umar Khalid’s rustication and a fine of Rs. 10,000 imposed on Kanhaiya Kumar in connection with the February 9, 2016 incident.

The JNU panel had in 2016 recommended rustication of Mr Khalid and two other students and imposed a fine of Rs. 10,000 on Mr Kumar, the then students’ union president, in connection with the campus event against Afzal Guru’s hanging during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.

The five-member panel had also imposed financial penalty on 13 other students for violation of disciplinary norms. ( PTI )
