, 3:10 PM IST

Patna : There was ruckus during Jawaharlal Nehru University Student’s Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar’s event in Patna this afternoon after a man was thrashed by his supporters for showing a black flag.

The police have detained two people for showing black flag to Kanhaiya during his speech at Patna’s SKM Hall.

Kanhaiya, who was yesterday given a warm welcome in the state capital, met Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav at their residences later in the day.

This is his first visit to Bihar after he was released from Delhi’s Tihar Jail on bail.

Kanhaiya was arrested on sedition charges in connection with an event held at the JNU campus in March where anti-national slogans were allegedly raised. (ANI)
