New Delhi: The duo, who returned to the JNU campus last Sunday after having gone missing since February 12, drove from the administrative block to the main gate of the university, got into a Delhi Police vehicle as per reports.

Khalid and Bhattacharya have been placed under police custody at South Campus police station, PTI reported.

ACP KP Kukreti also reached at South Campus police station amid tight security.

Medical of Khalid and Bhattacharya has been done in the police station, and questioning with them went on for 5 hours, ANI reported.

They are likely to be produced before a magistrate today.

Delhi Police had issued a look-out notice on February 20 against Khalid, Bhattacharya and three other students.

Apparently university students formed a human chain to prevent the media from following Khalid and Bhattacharya when they were leaving the campus this evening.

Earlier today the Delhi High Court had refused to grant interim protection from arrest to Umar and Anirban.

The court had also made it clear that the students should follow procedure and surrender.

The court had asked both petitioners to secretly give details of the date, place and time where they would surrender to the court.

The division bench had agreed to urgently hear the plea which also sought direction to JNU to allow Delhi Police to enter its premises to arrest the five students - Umar Khalid, Anant Prakash Narayan, Ashutosh Kumar, Rama Naga and Anirban Bhattacharya.

Kamini Jaiswal, appearing Khalid and Bhattacharya, had sought protection from their arrest till tomorrow.

Khalid and Anirban have been accused of organising an event on February 9 to mark the anniversary of the hanging of terrorist Afzal Guru.
