NEW DELHI, Feb 27: Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, facing sedition charges for allegedly raising “anti-India” slogans, were on Saturday sent to a further two days police custody, sources said. The proceedings were not held in Patiala House Courts complex here due to security concerns, said the sources, adding they were instead held in a south Delhi police station, where a magistrate was called for conducting the remand proceedings. The two were presented before the magistrate after expiry of their three-day police custody and the magistrate allowed Delhi Police to quiz them for two more days. Both the students surrendered before police on Tuesday midnight outside a gate of the university. (IANS)
