New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear a plea by lawyer R.P. Luthra objecting to Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi's statement that they will not oppose any plea for bail by JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar, who is accused of sedition.
An apex court bench comprising Justice J. Chelameswar and Justice Abhay Manohar Sapre said that it would hear the plea at 2 p.m. after counsel R.P.Luthra drew the attention of the court to the statement by the police commissioner.
"We are keeping an eye on the law and order situation in Patiala House Court. Everyone should be careful while issuing the statements," the court observed.
The court had on Wednesday listed the matter at 2 p.m. to get the report by the Lawyers Committee that it had sent to Patiala House Court on Wednesday to take stock of the ruckus in the court complex and the attack on Kanhaiya Kumar.
The Registrar General of the High Court too would give his report to the court on Wednesday's violence in the court complex and the presence of an unidentified man in the courtroom who had allegedly hit Kanhaiya Kumar.
