SC also issued notice to Centre, Delhi Police seeking SIT probe in Patiala House court scuffle.
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday pulled up the Centre and Delhi Police regarding a plea seeking an SIT probe and initiation of contempt action against three lawyers who had beaten up JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar and others, including journalists, in a court complex.
The apex court also issued notice to 3 lawyers — who assaulted Kanhaiya and were allegedly caught on camera “bragging and boasting” — seeking response on why contempt proceeding was not initiated against them.
A bench comprising Justices J Chelameswar and A M Sapre also issued notice to the three lawyers, allegedly caught in a sting operation, and fixed the matter for further hearing on March 4.
At the outset, the bench was reluctant to issue notice on the fresh plea filed by advocate Kamini Jaiswal, saying that it is already hearing a matter on the issue which is to come up on March 10.
