After high drama and arrest of militant students now a situation has come for the JNU students to surrender for avoiding further consequences. High court gave the agitating students an ultimatum saying that they will get no interim protection from arrest and they must follow the rules and either surrender or get arrested. This move really paid off as the duo of trouble shooters, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya facing charges of sedition surrendered to ease out the situation and allowed the Government to move forward for peace talks. The two students, who were in hiding for the last ten days, had surfaced on the JNU campus and challenged the police to arrest them. The drama of student leaders did not last long and the duo were forced to surrender unconditionally. The Government is taking a stern step and filed contempt plea against three lawyers also as they boasted on camera that they had beaten Kanhaiya Kumar in police lock-up for three hours. Such an allegation never appeared before now came up with the allegation against the three lawless lawyers. With the surrender of JNU students and the charges against erring lawyers the scene is set for an early end to the problems at the University.
