Hundreds of students from Jawahar Lal Nehru University marched to the Maharashtra Sadan in New Delhi, on Monday demanding immediate release of Hem Mishra. Mishra was arrested in August 2013, on charges of being a ‘Naxal Courier’. Mishra has been former student of the university, a cultural activist and former leader of Democratic Students’ Union (DSU). The protesters speaking with iamin said the march was organised after Mishra was again denied bail by a Maharashtra court on February 5. Logded in Nagpur jail, Mishra has been booked under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). The ex-JNU student has denied all the charges levelled against him. He had also written a letter to his friends and family from Nagpur jail last year mentioning that he was being tortured on daily basis.
