NEW DELHI -- A Delhi court on Tuesday sent Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya to 14-day judicial custody in a sedition case.

Both Khalid and Bhattacharya had allegedly organised the event in the JNU campus on 9 February where anti-national slogans were raised.

The police has claimed that around 22 people present at the JNU event, including some outsiders, have been identified after the joint interrogation of Khalid, Anirban and Jawaharlal Nehru University students' union president Kanhaiya Kumar arrested in the same case.

Khalid and Anirban are in police remand since their surrender and subsequent arrest on 24 February.
