NEW DELHI — A protest that rocked a New Delhi university this week spread across India on Thursday, with students and teachers in at least 10 cities joining demands for the release of a student leader arrested on sedition charges and accused of being anti-Indian.
Protesters were outraged by nationally televised scenes of Kanhaiya Kumar, the student union president at Jawaharlal Nehru University, being kicked and punched while he was escorted to a court hearing Wednesday, renewing allegations of intolerance by the country's Hindu nationalist governing party.
