Delhi court asks DCP to appear in JNU sedition case

A Delhi court on Friday asked a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) to appear before it on Saturday in connection to the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) sedition case.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Sherawat’s direction came after the Delhi Police failed to explain the cause of delay in getting sanction to proceed with the case.

At its last hearing, the court questioned the police why it filed a chargesheet in haste without getting sanction from the Delhi government to initiate proceedings against the accused former student leaders.

The court had also told the Delhi government not to sit on the police file seeking sanction to proceed in the case.

The case involves a February 2016 event organised in the JNU campus against the hanging of Parliament attack mastermind Afzal Guru.

The chargesheet was filed on January 14. It named former student leaders Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya and seven Kashmiri students as accused.
