Sharma was questioned at a police station in New Delhi district, a senior police official confirmed without divulging further details.

On Saturday, posters announcing Rs 11 lakh reward for shooting dead Kumar were seen stuck on a wall near Press Club of India and bus stops and metro stations in New Delhi district.

The poster said "whosoever shoots JNU Students' Union president and seditionist Kanhaiya will be rewarded Rs 11 lakh on the behalf of Purvanchal Sena." The posters carried the mobile number and name of Adarsh Sharma, president of one Purvanchal Sena.

On the same day, the police registered a case of defacement of property in connection with the matter and questioned one person, who was allegedly involved in sticking the posters on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday.
