Why did Delhi Police turned over-enthusiastic to arrest JNUSU leader Kanhaiya Kumar that too under sedition charges when the lad was repeatedly seen on all TV channels that he never raised any anti-India slogans and was sworn to Indian Constitution?
Latest media reports, one by CNN-IBN quoting sources said that BS Bassi, Delhi Police chief is eyeing the post of Chief Information Commissioner after his retirement on Feb. 29, when his tenure as the police commissoner of Delhi finishes. The selection panel was supposed to chose the new Chief Information Commissioner on 19 February and the incident came handy for bassi to hog the limelight and media attention.
As per the Supreme Court judgements in the past, sedition charges should be strongly convincing to have ignited violence. In this case of sedition, no such evidence has been put forward by Bassi or the Home Minister Rajnath Singh so far, except that they were repeatedly defending their action against the student leader.
