The Deputy Commission of Police of Delhi Police was summoned on Friday by the Delhi Court over the ongoing JNU sedition case. Question was raised and explaination was asked over the charge sheet filed against JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar and others for the offence of sedition without prosecution sanction.

The court has been postponing any action over the charge sheet because the investigation report was filed without the sanction of the court in January 2019.

According to Section 196 of CRPC no court shall take cognizance of any offence punishable under Chapter VI of the IPC. Section 124-A under which Kanhaiya Kumar and others were charged is also a part of this chapter.

On March 12, the last hearing of this case took place wherein  Magistrate Deepak Sherawat had asked the Deputy Commission of Police to file a report and the police promised to get the required sanction within 10 days.
