Shehla Rashid and CPI leader D Raja's daughter Aparajita Raja have also been named in the chargesheet filed in JNU sedition case along with Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya and others.

The Delhi police has filed 1200-page charge sheet under IPC section 124A (sedition), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 465 (forgery), 471 (using as genuine, forged document), 143 (punishment for unlawful assembly), 149 (unlawful assembly with common object), 147(rioting), & 120B (criminal conspiracy)

Patiala House Court will consider the charge sheet filed by police in 2016 JNU sedition case tomorrow (15 January).

The Delhi police filed chargesheet in 3-year-old JNU sedition case against some JNU students for organising an event on February 9, 2016, to protest the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. The FIR stated that “anti-national” slogans were allegedly raised at the event.

Aparajita Raja's father, CPI leader D Raja reponsded over the chargesheet filed against his daughter and called it 'politically motivated.'

"Even at that time we said that these are politically motivated charges & nobody can accuse AISF for any activity against nation. There's nothing to prove, our students can't indulge in such activities & government can't slap sedition charges on them. We'll fight the case in the Court,"  said D Raja.
