The SC asks counsel to tell Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi to take action against those indulging in violence irrespective of their profession.
The apex court also sent 6-member team of lawyers Kapil Sibal, Rajeev Dhavan, Dushyant Dave, A D N Rao, Ajit Sinha and Harin Raval with police protection to assess the ground situation at Patiala House court.
The top court’s order came after, a large group of men dressed in lawyers’ robes today again barged into the Patiala House court complex and allegedly beat up a journalist and a student ahead of the hearing in the sedition case of JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar.
The group, which could be seen raising slogans “Vande Mataram” and waving India’s flag in the court premises, was led by Vikram Chauhan, one of the lawyers who had attacked JNU students and faculty on February 15.
