3 Kashmiri Students Re-arrested for Raising Pro-Pakistan Slogans on Pulwama Attack Anniversary
The action came after members of right-wing organisations staged demonstrations outside the police station on Sunday.
Hubballi (Karnataka): The three Kashmiri engineering students from a college here facing sedition charges, were arrested again on Monday after protests broke out against the police for releasing them on execution of a bond under Section 169 of CrPC.
The trio, students of a private engineering college, were arrested on Saturday for raising pro-Pakistan slogans and posting it on social media on the first anniversary of the terrorist attack that left scores of CRPF soldiers dead at Pulwama in Kashmir.
They were let off on Sunday upon the execution of a bond under Section 169 of CrPC. "They (Kashmiri students) have been arrested, produced before the court and remanded in judicial custody," the Hubballi-Dharwad police Commissioner R Dileep said.
The police had come under severe criticism for releasing the youths on Sunday. According to police sources, they were apprehended on Monday morning and taken to court. The action came after members of right-wing organisations staged demonstrations outside the police station on Sunday.
Sri Ram Sena chief Pramod Muthalik was among those who criticised the police for releasing the youth who allegedly "demonstrated their anti-India vitriol on the first anniversary of Pulwama attack." Police sources said Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai too spoke to the police officials about the case.
