Kumar was sent back to judicial remand, which will end on March 2, after the police told the court that they did not need his further custody, said Kumar's counsel.

The court had yesterday sent Kumar to one day police custody after the prosecution said that he was needed to be confronted with Khalid and Anirban in view of discrepancies in their statements regarding the controversial JNU event.

All three of them were today interrogated together for the first time at a south Delhi police station. They were subjected to two rounds of questioning, with Kumar being confronted with the two separately in the first round and together in the second, a police source said.

Around 4.20 PM, Kumar left the premises of the R K Puram police station for Tihar, the source said, adding that police is likely to seek further remand of Khalid and Anirban, whose police custody ends tomorrow.

The police source claimed that Kanhaiya has so far maintained that on February 9, he came out of his room only when he got to know about a possible confrontation between two groups over the event inside the campus and has dissociated himself with the event.

While Khalid has so far denied having indulged in any anti-national sloganeering, Anirban challenged claims that the slogans mentioned by the police were anti-national in nature.
