NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday will hear the plea seeking a probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in the sedition case against Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union president Kanhaiya Kumar.
The plea has been mentioned before a bench of Justices B D Ahmed and R K Gauba. It has also sought a judicial inquiry in the entire case, soon after a group of men in lawyers' robes were seen thrashing students and journalists in the nearby Patiala House court complex yesterday.
The petition alleged that Delhi Police was not investigating the case properly and the matter should be transferred to the NIA. The bench yesterday posted the matter for hearing today.
It also observed that the Delhi Police was already conducting a probe and would take the case to its logical conclusion.
