Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday ordered a magisterial inquiry into the JNU incident where anti - India slogans are said to have been reaised.
The announcement was made soon after a delegation of political leaders met Kejriwal and requested him to launch a probe to establish the authenticity of the evidence in the incident.
"There are claims that JNU student leaders shouted anti - India slogans and counter claims that ABVP activists did it. To find truth, Delhi government is directing District Magistrate (DM) to conduct an enquiry, " Kejriwal tweeted.
Jawaharlal Nehru University students on Tuesday had organised a meet on the campus to mourn the hanging of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) co - founder Maqbool Bhat, where anti - India slogans were raised.
A delegation that included CPI - M general secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI national secretary D. Raja and Janata Dal - United secretary general K. C. Tyagi on Saturday met Kejriwal and demanded an independent inquiry in the matter.
