Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Friday said that the students who raised anti-national slogans at the JNU campus 'lacked moral ethics'.
"This incident took place because the students, who raised anti-national slogans in JNU lacked moral ethics," Parrikar told the media.
The Supreme Court has today asked Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students' union president Kanhaiya Kumar to approach the High Court for bail.
Kanhaiya on Thursday had moved a petition before the apex court seeking his release from police custody under Article 32 of the Constitution.
Kanhaiya stated in the plea that he "feared for the safety of life and limb" at the Delhi sessions court, which had compelled him to approach the apex court directly.
