New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday agreed to hear a plea filed by JNU students Umar Khalid and others seeking security before they surrender to court.
This group of students were the organisers of the Pro-Afzal event that took place in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Campus. After spending 10 days by hiding they returned to the University on Sunday. Police is still not allowed to enter the university campus by the Vice Chancellor.

The high court also agreed to hear a plea filed by a lawyer seeking direction to Delhi Police to enter JNU campus and arrest Umar Khalid and other students, who allegedly raised anti-national slogans inside the university campus.
