    The controversy over Kumar's arrest and police action at the university campus - that had now become a major political crisis - was sparked by an event, reportedly in support of Afzal Guru, convicted and hanged for the December 2001 attack on Parliament, at JNU on February 9. Students had allegedly shouted anti-India comments at the event.
