New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday refused to hear the bail plea of JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar, arrested on sedition charges.
Agreeing that the situation in Patiala House Courts is not proper, the apex court said the matter can be heard by the Delhi High Court.
The court further asked Centre and the Delhi Police to ensure proper security arrangements for counsel of the student union leader on the premises of the HC.
Kumar’s bail petition was mentioned before a bench of justices J Chelameswar and AM Sapre by senior advocate Soli J Sorabjee and Raju Ramachandran.
In the petition, filed through advocate Anindita Pujari, the accused has submitted that there is a threat to his life and there was a need for the apex court to intervene for safeguarding his life and limb.
