"Kanhaiya didn't shout anti-India slogans. He is innocent. The BJP and the RSS is trying to fix him," Jaishankar Singh told media in Begusarai.

He also accused Delhi Police of working under BJP government's pressure.

"Delhi Police is working under pressure from the BJP and the RSS. I would urge Prime Minister Narendra Modi to dismiss the case against Kanhaiya and hand over the case to CBI," he said.

Kanhaiya's mother Meena Devi, an aanganwadi worker, added: "My son is being tortured under the very nose of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. My son has done no wrong."

The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union president, who is from the CPI-affiliated AISF, was arrested a week ago on charges of shouting anti-India slogans. He was on Wednesday sent to judicial custody till 2 March.
