The apex court said Kanhaiya can now move to the trail court as enough security has been given to him.

Kanhaiya yesterday moved a petition before the apex court seeking his release from police custody under Article 32 of the Constitution.

Kanhaiya stated in the plea that he “fears for the safety of life and limb” at the Delhi sessions court that had compelled him to approach the apex court directly.
