JNU row: SC to hear contempt plea against Kanhaiya Kumar today

New Delhi, Feb. 22 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Monday will hear the plea seeking contempt action against jailed Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, former Delhi University lecturer SAR Gilani and few others.

The plea has been filed on the grounds that the accused allegedly termed the execution of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru as judicial killing.

The plea said that pamphlets were allegedly distributed during the event held at JNU on February 9th that termed death sentence to Guru as judicial killing, which tantamounts to criminal contempt as the respondents are calling the judges of the apex court as killers.

Kanhaiya’s bail plea is likely to be heard by Delhi High Court tomorrow. He had approached the high court after the Supreme Court on Friday refused to hear his bail petition on the ground that it will set a dangerous precedent and had asked him to approach the high court. (ANI)
