Police said Sehrawat had earlier been arrested for allegedly threatening senior Delhi Congress leader and former MLA Alka Lamba in a video and using obscene language. He told police that he has been associated with the World Hindu Council (VHP) since 2018.


Police, however, said they were verifying his identity card.

Sehrawat has nothing to do with JRU and the video was made to attract attention, they said.

Kumar is the owner of the phone from where the video was uploaded to JNU.


“We received a PCR call from a JNU student at Basant Kunj (North) police station at 1.51 am on Sunday saying that a video had been uploaded on the Facebook page ‘Mahakal Youth Brigade’ alleging that the varsity would be attacked.” Police (South-West) Ingit Pratap Singh said.

After receiving the PCR call, plain clothes of police members were deployed at all the gates.

A few more calls were also received in this regard, police said.


“The student came to the police station and lodged a complaint. Officials at the Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union (JNUSU) have filed a similar complaint alleging that the video promotes confusion and hostility, uses inflammatory language and even publicly threatens physical injury.

The video of the page was seen and heard and a case was filed under Section 153A (Promoting animosity between different groups on the basis of religion, race, place of birth, etc.), 295A (intentional and malicious act aimed at insulting religious sentiments) Statement) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation).

Police said further investigation is underway.
