JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who could not be presented at the Patiala House Court on 17 February, will now be in judicial custody for 14 days. He will now remain in judicial custody till 2 March.
The court has instructed the Delhi Police to provide security to the JNUSU president throughout his stay in custody. The Supreme Court is presently concerned with implementing law and order.
At the same time, the ministry of home affairs has directed the Delhi Police to take action as per the tenets of the law. Media reports pointed out whether it was “as per law” when the Delhi Police acted in a partisan manner and protected the attackers instead of the victims.
