New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today adjourned the hearing in response to the bail petition of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students’ Union President Kanhaiya Kumar, who is now in judicial remand after being arrested by Delhi Police on the charge of sedition.

The Delhi Police filed a status report on investigation in the case and told the High Court bench of Justice Pratibha Rani that it would be seeking Kumar’s remand from the trial court.Taking this into consideration and also a request by Kanhaiya’s counsel, the court deferred the matter till 29 February.

Kanhaiya’s judicial remand is to expire on March 2. He is now lodged in Tihar jail. Two other accused Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, have surrendered before the police in the same case.

Kanhaiya was arrested on the charge of sedition linked with an event organised on the JNU campus on February 9 to commemorate Afzal Guru, who was convicted in the parliament attack case and hanged following orders of the Supreme Court.
