JNU withdraws Kanhaiya Kumarís private security cover, over Rs 5 lakh spent

Jawaharlal Nehru University withdrew the private security cover provided to JNU studentsí union president Kanhaiya Kumar who is out on bail in a sedition case.
The varsity, has sent a notice to Kumar, stating that the expense on his security has run up to Rs 5 lakh and the same arrangement can be continued only after that amount is cleared.
ďKanhaiya has already been provided with security by Delhi Police on orders from the high court and hence there is limited need for private security on campus,Ē a senior varsity official said.
ďThe vice-chancellor decided to withdraw the same and the decision was communicated to chief security officer. The university canít bear such high cost for personal security of a single individual. The campus is safe and there is security everywhere,Ē he added.
Kanhaiya was arrested in February this year in a sedition case over an event on campus against hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.
After his bail, he was offered police security by the Delhi high court. However, Kanhaiya wrote to the VC that he didnít want Delhi Police personnel inside the campus.
The JNU administration then engaged four personnel of Group 4 who used to be stationed at his hostel and accompany him everywhere in the campus.
