FTII receives letter threatening not to invite Kanhaiya

Pune: Prashant Pathrabe, the Chairman of Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Pune, on Saturday evening received a parcel containing detonator with a yellow chemical threatening not to invite JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar in the campus.

Meanwhile, the Maharashtra Police have registered an FIR against unknown people in Deccan Gymkhana Police Station here.

It is pertinent to note that the JNUSU president withdrew his fast today after the indefinite hunger strike by JNU students entered the tenth day.

Even though Kanhaiya has ended his fast, other JNU students are continuing with their protest.

Kanhaiya, who was charged with sedition in connection with pro-Afzal event and is currently out on bail, launched his indefinite hunger strike at the campus on April 28 in protest against the fine slapped on him and 25 other students by a JNU committee. (ANI)
