Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) administration not to take action against Student Union president Kanhaiya Kumar until further notice. The direction comes after Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya pleaded against the order by the appellate authority.

On Monday, Delhi High Court had asked JNU not to take action against Anirban Bhattacharya and Umar Khalid.

Kanhaiya Kumar and others were arrested on alleged sedition charge in connection with anti-Indian sloganeering and holding protests against Afzal Guru’s hanging. They are temporarily out on bail.

Deeming their act as a blot on its reputation, the university had earlier refused to give in and withdraw disciplinary action proposed against the students. Following this, a group of students sent a plea to Delhi High Court.

Last month Special Cell of Delhi Police had made a submission in which it stated that JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar and two other students did not misuse interim bail conditions and cooperated with the probe in a sedition case relating to the alleged anti-India slogan-shouting at the university campus in February.

This submission was in reply to applications seeking regular bail for the three accused in the case before Additional Sessions Judge Reetesh Singh.
