Delhi HC to hear plea seeking cancellation of Kanhaiya

Submitted by Kumuda on Thu, 2016-03-17 11:45 New Delhi: The Delhi High Court will hear the plea seeking the cancellation of the interim bail granted to Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar on March 23. This development comes after the plea was transferred for a hearing before a different bench of the Delhi High Court, after the counsel for the petitioner objected to a "warning" by the bench to his client that he would have to bear costs if the matter was dismissed. Justice Pratibha Rani, who had granted interim bail to Kumar, asked the counsel whether the petitioner was personally present in the courtroom, and then warned him that he should be ready to bear costs if the petition were to be dismissed. Meanwhile, expressing concerns over the High Level Enquiry Committee that has been set up to look into the events of the night of February 9 at the varsity campus, the JNUSU has asserted that they will oppose any disciplinary action based upon the findings of the 'partial and biased' enquiry Following a council meeting on Wednesday, a resolution was passed by the Students' Union, stating that they have communicated to the JNU administration of how the HLEC has violated the principles of natural justice in the enquiry process and that their concerns were not even addressed.
