New Delhi: A court here on Tuesday sent, to 14 days judicial custody, JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, facing sedition charges for allegedly raising "anti-India" slogans, sources said.

Both the accused were presented before a magistrate in a police station in south Delhi due to security concerns after expiry of their additional one day police custody, sources said.

On Monday, a magistrate allowed police to quiz the two Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students for one more day.

Both the students surrendered before police on last Tuesday last week outside a gate of the university.

A case against Khalid and Bhattacharya was registered at Vasant Kunj police station, soon after JNU Student Union president Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested under the same charges on February 12 after the event held on the university campus against the execution of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. He allegedly shouted anti-India slogans at the event.
