NEW DELHI: In a major setback to JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar, the Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain his bail petition.
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.
Kanhaiya in petition has said that there is repeated breakdown of law and order at the Patiala House Court despite directives of the apex court, making it impossible for him and his lawyers to approach the session’s court for bail.
