The accused students were produced before a court in Hubli on Monday amid protests by lawyers and activists of Hindu organisations.
Kashmiri engineering students who had been charged with sedition for allegedly chanting pro-Pakistan slogans in their hostel room in Hubli were on Sunday granted bail after furnishing a bond under Section 169 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).
Hubli police arrested them on Saturday on basis of a complaint from a member of a right-wing outfit, which had been protesting at the KLE Engineering College to demand their arrest.
As per the repot, the students recorded the video with the theme song of Pakistan Army playing in the background. The student, identified as Basit, can be heard saying in the video in Kashmiri, “My name is Basit and I am a resident of Sopore. I am doing fine here and hope you are fine there too.”
The video created a stir locally, and soon it is believed to have become viral, triggering protests at the college.
