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.

“After filing of the charge sheet, no department can sit on its hands with the file with regard to the sanction. The department concerned can do well to speed up the matter regarding the sanction”, said Deepak Sherawat.
