Delhi Police Wednesday told the High Court that JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar “seemed to have violated” the conditions of his bail order.
Last month, the High Court had refused to issue orders on a plea to cancel Kumar’s bail, observing he was “not hampering the investigation.” Delhi Police had then pointed out that they had not sought cancellation of Kumar’s bail and the plea had been filed by a private person.
Citing “public speeches” made by Kumar, police said “from the bare perusal of the material which is available in public domain, it seems that he has misused his liberty.”
“Undoubtedly, the spirit of the order while granting bail was an expectation from a student to come back into the mainstream… However, as is evident, the respondent no. 2 did not adhere strictly to the letter and spirit of the order,” said police.
