At the point when the station house officer (SHO) of a close-by police headquarters went by the JNU grounds on February 9, he saw students at a night rally commemorating the anniversary of the execution of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri separatist.
The Delhi Police again filled the part of a “silent spectator” as attacker defend the Supreme Court’s request for restricted to the trial court complex, bashed up Mr. Kumar in transit to his court hearing and heaved the choicest abuse, rock and a barbed end of a vase piece at a six-member team of senior supporters, including Kapil Sibal, hand-picked by the Supreme Court to check and report back on the ground situation in the court complex.
They evidently shouted: “Afzal ki hatya nahin sahengay, nahin sahengay. Kitni Afzal Marogey, har ghar mein Afzal rehta hai. Ghar se afzal niklengay. … haq hamara aazadi, leke rahengay aazadi. Pakistan Zindabad.” (We won’t tolerate Afzal’s murder. How many Afzal’s will you kill? He lives in every house. Freedom is our right and we will take it).”
“We are all nationalists here. If that some person attacked the homeland, do you take the law into your own hands? Control is an overlooked word in all circles of life today,” Justice Chelameswar shot back.
The listening to finished with the Bench limiting passage to the trial court only to lawyers showing up in the sedition case, five writers, four quick relatives of Mr. Kumar or one JNU employee or student each – all ensured by the Delhi High Court Regisrar General to be available in people at Patiala House courts – in an offer abstain from congestion of the court said to be hardly 15×10 feet in size.
