Man accused of attacking JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar posts selfies with Amit Shah

News Agencies | Updated on: 6 June 2016, 12:32 IST

Manas Deka, accused by JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar of trying to "strangle" him aboard an aircraft in April, on Sunday led a delegation of Assamese youths which greeted BJP president Amit Shah at a function in Pune.

The brief encounter took place before Shah was to address a convention of 'Pramod Mahajan Skill and Entrepreneurship Mission', a state government initiative on the lines of the Centre's 'Skill India', at an auditorium.

However, the delegation did not attend the function and left immediately.

Manas later posted the selfies with Shah on his social media account.

On 24 April, Kumar had alleged that Manas, working with a city-based software firm, had tried to strangle him aboard a Pune-bound Jet Airways flight.

Mumbai Police had registered a non-cognisable offence on Kumar's complaint. However, the allegations were reportedly described by the police as "untrue".

Kumar had described Manas as a "strong BJP supporter" in his tweet after the incident.
