JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar to be produced in court, BJP MP wants his relaese

Delhi: Kumar will again be produced before the Metropolitan Magistrate at Patiala House court complex which had earlier witnessed violence during his hearing.

Following the attack on students and scribes outside the Patiala House court, the Supreme Court is also set to hear a PIL on Wednesday, after journalists moved the apex court yesterday. The petition was filed by ND Jaiprakash, who alleged that police were a “mute spectator to this brazen display of violence and brute force being perpetrated on innocent persons”.

“This petition merely seeks to assure safety of the accused, their relatives, friends, lawyers and journalists while discharging their legal as well as professional obligations. The surcharged and vicious atmosphere in the Court premises would come in the way of the fundamental right of the accused for a fair trial,” the plea said.

JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested on Friday after a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy was registered over holding an event on the varsity campus during which anti-India slogans were alleged to have been raised.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday came up in support of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who has been arrested on sedition charges and said that he is praying for his immediate release. ‘Have heard transcript of speech of Kanhaiya, our Bihar boy president of JNUSU. He has said nothing anti national or against constitution. Hope wish and pray that he’s release soon, sooner the better,’ Sinha tweeted. Sinha further stated that the Jawaharlal Nehru University is going through a crisis ‘for reasons best known to politicians’.

He went on to say that the JNU is an institution of international repute, enviable record and history. ‘It is a seat of learning for some of India’s brightest young minds & also some very respectable teachers. Save it from further embarrassment, he tweeted. Kanhaiya Kumar will be produced before Delhi court today as his two-day police custody ends and the Supreme Court will also hear a plea seeking a fair trial “free from fear of violence and prejudice” for Kumar.
