"The police action on the (JNU) students was undemocratic", moderate Hurriyat chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said in a statement here.

Terming the police reaction 'uncalled-for', Mirwaiz, who is in Delhi, claimed the organisers were in no way involved in any illegal activity.

Kanhaiya was arrested this afternoon after police had picked him up for questioning, a day after a case was registered against unknown persons yesterday under Section of 124 A (sedition) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of IPC at Vasant Kunj (North) Police station following complaints by BJP MP Mahesh Giri and the party's student wing ABVP.
