Four persons on Tuesday allegedly tried to attack JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar in separate instances during a march led by him demanding release of JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya.
While three persons hurled abuses at Kanhaih Kumar during his speech near Parliament Street police station and were whisked away by the police who perceived threat in connection with the matter, one managed to climb the truck over which Kumar was standing while addressing the gathering. The moment the persons started shouting on Kanhaiya over his comments on security forces, the JNU students formed a human chain and raised an alarm. The fourth man managed to break the chain but he too was whisked away by police by the time he could reach him. These four were put under preventive detention in view of law and orders issue.
