New Delhi, Feb.19 (ANI): JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar’s bail plea in the High Court will not be heard today.
Registrar General Lopen Bomniyal said that the additional application in the matter is yet to be filed.
Meanwhile, another petition has been filed in the court saying that Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi’s statement of not opposing Kanhaiya Kumar’s bail may hamper the trial.
The petition seeks to ensure fair trial in the case and the matter is likely to be heard next week.
The bail plea was filed earlier in the afternoon by his lawyers Vrinda Grover and Sushil Bajaj.
This came after the Supreme Court refused to entertain their plea and directed them to move the High Court.
Counsel Raju Ramachandra appearing for Kanhaiya had told the apex court earlier that the atmosphere of Patiala House Court is not safe for the accused and his lawyers.
“The Defence lawyers are not able to perform their duty in such a hostile environment. That is why the bail application had been moved to the Supreme Court,” he said. (ANI)
