New Delhi, Feb. 17 (ANI): Jawaharlal Nehru University Student’s Union president Kanhaiya Kumar will be produced before Delhi court today as his two-day police custody ends and the Supreme Court will also hear a plea seeking a fair trial “free from fear of violence and prejudice” for Kumar.
Kumar will again be produced before the Metropolitan Magistrate at Patiala House court complex which had earlier witnessed violence during his hearing.
The petition was filed by N D Jaiprakash, who alleged that police were a “mute spectator to this brazen display of violence and brute force being perpetrated on innocent persons”.
“This petition merely seeks to assure safety of the accused, their relatives, friends, lawyers and journalists while discharging their legal as well as professional obligations. The surcharged and vicious atmosphere in the Court premises would come in the way of the fundamental right of the accused for a fair trial,” the plea said. (ANI)
