NEW DELHI: Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar was on Wednesday roughed up allegedly by a group of lawyers in the Patiala House Court. 

The incident took place when Kanhaiya was being produced before Metropolitan Magistrate Loveleen under heavy security cover.

The court will today hear the plea on the basis of which Kanhaiya was remanded to police custody.

High drama was witnessed at the Patiala House Court earlier in the day where two groups of lawyers were seen raising slogans inside the court premises and beating up each other including journalists.

Earlier, hearing the matter the apex court condemned Monday's attack on journalists in the Patiala House Court complex in connection with the JNU row.

The Supreme Court earlier ordered Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi to ensure security to the accused and limit the number of journalists to be present inside the court room to five.

“No other advocates other than that of accused and the prosecution will be present during the proceedings in court room. Only 25 reporters can stand outside,” the apex court said.

Kumar was arrested last week for holding an event in the varsity campus during which anti-India slogans were allegedly raised.
