altApril 10,  New Delhi :- Prof P Koya, the General Secretary and Mr Reny Ayline  the Secretary visited Prof S A R Gilani in New Delhi at his residence. Prof Gilani  arrested in a case of sedition, was released from Tihar jail  in March.

NCHRO demanded  Geelani's release while he was arrested and demanded that sedition charges should be dropped against him and he should be allowed to rejoin duty. It seems the  “colonial” sedition law under which he has been charged was being “misused to suppress dissent” and should be scrapped. “Supreme Court had clearly laid down the parameters of applicability of the sedition law and had held time and again that peaceful discussions and expression of views cannot attract charges of sedition.
