Delhi police on Monday arrested Adarsh Sharma, the so-called Poorvanchal Sena chief who offered Rs 11 lakhs to kill JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar.
The maverick man had been questioned last week but let off by the Delhi Police, and now with posters in his name appearing all over Delhi, his arrest became imminent.
The adamant sena chief said he wanted Kanhaiya dead for what he said letting down motherland by raising “antinational slogans,” which were proved fabricated by some TV channels and had spread animosity against the JNUSU leader. “The court will take time to deliver a judgment, but we will ensure that he is shown his place at the earliest. This is why we will give Rs 11 lakh to his killer,” he told police unabashed.
With little knowledge about the judicial proceedings, Adarsh Sharma and the likes have become an uncontrollable specimen in Indian democracy whom the police was unable to identify and stop from attacking the media-hyped vulnerable targets.
Adarsh Sharma, who claimed that he had worked for some newspapers in his past, said the Purvanchal Sena was set up for the welfare of people from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. It has a twitter account @adarshmedia that is spewing vengeance and hatred against Christian owned Fabindia and turning against Kejriwal over his anti-media remarks among others.
