Delhi Police’s Crime Branch on Tuesday arrested former IIT and JNU student Sharjeel Imam from Jahanabad in Bihar. He has been slapped with charges of sedition. Inflammatory and misleading speeches made by the PhD student of JNU’s Centre for History Studies during demonstrations against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and at other places had led to a surfeit of FIRs against him in several states.

“We have arrested Sharjeel Imam from Jahanabad,” said Crime Branch Deputy Commissioner Rajesh Dev. Police had deployed five teams to locate Bihar resident Sharjeel Imam. Police raided his suspected hideouts in Mumbai, Patna, Jahanabad and Delhi to capture him.

Delhi Police said that an FIR was registered in this regard on 25 January. Two videos of his speeches went viral. Sharjeel had spoken in Jamia Millia Islamia on 13 December and in Aligarh on 16 January. The tenor of the speech was seditious. Delhi Police has registered a case of treason against the rabble-rouser under Sections 124A and 153A.

Delhi Police said that a day after Sharjeel was seen in Phulwari Sharif on 25 February, a police team reached Patna. “Bihar Police cooperated a lot,” an officer said.

In the night of 27 January, Sharjeel’s brother was found. Police extracted a lot of information on the whereabouts of Sharjeel in that raid.

On Tuesday at 2 PM, police detained and then arrested Sharjeel. He will now be brought back to Delhi.

Separate teams raided locations in Jahanabad and Patna of Bihar for the arrest of Sharajeel Imam. A separate team raided Sharjeel’s ancestral house in Kako, detained his brother and q=interrogated him. Yet another team searched Sharjeel’s residence on Sunday night, detained and questioned three people there.

In Uttar Pradesh, Sharjeel faces charges under Sections 124A, 153A, 153B and 505 (2) of the IPC. Police registered cases against him in Assam as well.

In the video that was shot in Aligarh, Sharjeel is heard saying, “Assam should be cut off from the rest of India. Spread the word that the government is killing both Hindus and Muslims in Assam or keeping them in detention centres. We must mobilise five lakh and Assam can be separated from India for a few months.”

Shaheen Bagh squatting protesters have tried to distance themselves from him as Sirf News had reported earlier.
