JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar says: Indian security forces rape women in Kashmir
Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union president, Kanhaiya Kumar created yet another controversy on Tuesday after he reportedly said that Indian security forces rape women in Kashmir.
Kanhaiya, who is already facing sedition charges for allegedly raising anti-India slogans in university campus, was addressing students in JNU on the occasion of International Women's Day.

According to a video uploaded by Zee News on YouTube Kanhaiya said, "While we have a lot of respect for our soldiers, we will talk about the fact that India security forces rape women in Kashmir."

Kanhaiya who is out on an interim bail currently, also said that he would raise his voice against AFSPA (Armed Forces Special Powers Act) in Kashmir.

He was detained by the Delhi Police for allegedly raising anti-national slogans on February 12. He allegedly raised his voice against the nation during an event to commemorate the 3rd anniversary of the execution of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. Kanhaiya was lodged in Delhi's Tihar jail.

However, on March 2, he was granted interim bail for 6 months by Delhi High Court. He belongs to Bihat village in Bihar's Begusarai. Recently, Kumar's grandfather moved to court in Bihar against two people who offered rewards for chopping Kanhaiya's tongue or killing him.

Allegedly, Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha leader Kuldeep Varshney proclaimed a reward of Rs 5 lakh to anyone cutting off Kanhaiya's tongue last week, while Sharma announced Rs 11 lakh reward for killing Kanhaiya.
