The ongoing 2016 JNU sedition case under which the Delhi Police charged former JNU Students Union President Kanhaiya Kumar and others over leading an anti-national procession and supporting seditious slogans inside the university campus  took another turn on Saturday when the Delhi Police was questioned by a court in Delhi over filing the case without receiving any permitted sanctions.

The question raised by the court was upon the fact that the charge sheet was filed without the presence of any required sanctions by the court. The court said on Saturday, “Why did you file without approval? You don’t have a legal department.”

On being questioned, Magistrate Deepak Sherawat granted the police to acquire the required sanction within 10 days (till February 6). The court is likely to resume the hearing on the matter soon thereafter.

The chargesheet was filed on January 14¬†over a procession held in February 2016 supporting seditious slogans on the varsity campus. The event had taken place despite permission being cancelled by the university administration and a complaint filed by ABVP calling it ‘anti-national’.
