JNU Student Union president Kanhaiya Kumar was sent in Police custody for 15 more days after The Delhi High Court adjourned his bail plea hearing for February 29.
The Delhi High Court accepted argument provided by Aditional solicitor general Tushar Mehta and rejected Kanhaiya Kumar’s request.
“After yesterday’s development, two of the accused have surrendered and are in safe custody. Their remand is yet to be taken. In the backdrop of the new development and as per our statutory right of 15 days police custody of an accused, we will be seeking remand of Kanhaiya Kumar to confront him with Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya,” said Aditional solicitor general Tushar Mehta.
Senior advocate Kapil Sibal was representing Kanhaiya Kumar. Kapil Sibal said Kanhaiya Kumar should be granted bail since there is no evidence against Kanhaiya Kumar as per the status report filed by Delhi Police.
