Man who offered Rs 11 lakh to shoot Kanhaiya arrested

The Delhi Police on Monday arrested a man who put up posters offering a reward of Rs 11 lakh for shooting JNU student’s union president Kanhaiya Kumar.

The police earlier questioned Adarsh Sharma — who said he was the president of ‘Purvanchal Sena’ — in connection with a case registered over sticking posters announcing the reward. “Sharma has been arrested under charges of defacement of public property, abetment of offence punishable with imprisonment, public mischief, criminal intimidation and forgery,” a senior police official said, adding more charges can be added later.

The poster, spotted at the Press Club of India and other places in New Delgi, said “whosoever shoots JNU Students’ Union president and seditionist Kanhaiya will be rewarded Rs 11 lakh on the behalf of Purvanchal Sena.”The posters carried the mobile number and name of Sharma.
