New Delhi, Feb. 22 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Monday directed all concerned parties to share the reports among themselves regarding the violence at the Patiala House Court premises before the next hearing on March 10.

The Registrar of Delhi High Court, the Supreme Court Panel, Delhi Police, Bar Council, Delhi High Court’s Administrative Committee and the counsel of the accused submitted their reports today.

During the hearing, Solicitor General Soli Sorabjee requested the court not to make any observation, which may prejudice the proceedings pending before the High Court as JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar’s bail plea is set to be heard tomorrow.

In reply, the apex court said that they are not going to decide on the merit of the case but will only examine the reported violence at the Patiala House Court.
