NEW DELHI:  The Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) leader Kanhaiya Kumar to approach the sessions court with his bail application.

Justice P.S. Teji refused to hear Kanhaiya Kumar's bail application and asked his counsel and senior advocate Rebecca John to move the sessions court for seeking his regular bail.

Kanhaiya Kumar had moved the high court for seeking regular bail as his six-months interim bail is scheduled to expire on September 1.

While granting the interim bail to the student leader on March 2, the high court had warned him against participating "actively or passively in any activity which may be termed as anti-national".

Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested on sedition charges for taking part in a controversial event on Kashmir, held in the university campus on February 9.
