    They deserved slap on their faces. Put them in Jail for this anti India activities. These days we do not know what is happening to people in India. Anti India statements like this, anti Ghnadhi., anti constitution statements are all on increase and all these taken lightly.

    There is something more to this story for these only 3 students hailing from far away Kashmir then here in Hubbali to raise pro Pakistan slogan is not a easy task. In spite of all this why police initially were reluctant to take action against them on alleged video???.. Lab reports about the source of video can shed some light on this case like production and fabrication of tukde tukde gang story by BJP.

    All these ungrateful traitors, instead of taking them into judicial custody, must be transported to the Line of Control and thrown them to the other side, where they can chant slogans as long as they want.
    Then let the Pakistani people/government come and take them into Pakistan and feed them.
    Keeping these unfaithful, ungrateful creatures into Police or Judicial custody, is again another burden on us wherein they are fed inside the prison free with our tax paid money.
    Our government is not paying from their pocket.
    Moreover, as Mr. Jossey Saldanha mentioned above, yes, Mr. Kejrival would be a right person, who can teach them a lesson.
