Former Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda’s then political advisor Prof Virender, who has been booked under sedition charges for allegedly inciting violence during the Jat quota agitation, surrendered before Haryana Police in Rohtak on Thursday. He was on the run for 22 days. He has been sent to two days’ police custody.


Virender had been booked on the basis of an audio-clip that went viral during the Jat agitation. The complaint against him and Khap leader Maan Singh Dalal had been lodged by Rohtak resident Capt (retd) Pawan Anchal.

On March 15, Virender’s plea for anticipatory bail was rejected by the Rohtak District and Sessions Judge Sushil
Kumar Gupta.
