JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar, arrested on sedition charges, recounted the horrific incident at the Patiala House Court premises on February 17 where he was assaulted by a mob of persons dressed as lawyers.
In visuals that were aired on television news channels on Saturday, Kanhaiya was seen telling a team of Supreme Court advocates about the attack. He also accused the Delhi Police of not taking any action even after he identified his attacker.
“A mob which wore lawyers’ robes, attacked me. It happened just after I entered the gate. It looked as if they were prepared to attack me on my arrival, because those who were beating me, were also calling on others to do the same. The place from where we enter the court, there is a machine, while pushing me through that machine my pants came off, I suffered injuries. They bashed me with punches and kicks to my stomach. I was beaten by one after another,” Kanhaiya is seen telling the SC team.
