The High Court has rejected a plea seeking that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) look into the sedition charges against JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar. The Court reportedly dismissed the plea, calling it "immature".
The petition, filed by Ranjana Agnihotri, alleged that the Delhi Police was not investigating the case properly and asked that the matter be transferred to the NIA instead.
Kumar was arrested on 12 February in connection with a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy over a 9 February event at the prestigious university, held to mark the anniversary of the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. He was produced before the Patiala House Court on 15 February and his police custody was extended to two days.
