The Delhi High Court on Tuesday rejected a plea seeking a National Investigation Agency (NIA) probe into the alleged anti-national activities on the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus. Terming it as "premature", the court exuded confidence that the Delhi Police can investigate the incident.
The HC had on Monday agreed to hear the plea filed by a Delhi lawyer. Advocate Ranjana Agnihotri had also sought the appointment of a judicial commission to look into the February 9 incidents on the JNU campus.
Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested in a sedition case on February 12 after an event held on the university campus against hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. On February 12, Kumar was remanded in three-day police custody by a court here. On Monday, his police custody was extended by two days.
