The JNU sedition case has been transferred to the Special Cell because, says Bassi, the regular cops have too much to do.
A few days after registering the case in connection with the February 9 event in JNU campus, DCP (South) Prem Nath had written to the Commissioner, requesting him to transfer the case to Special Cell.
Mr Bassi had refused to do so then saying that the concerned police district has enough capacity to deal with the matter.
So on Monday, when Kanhaiya Kumar’s bail application is heard next, the cops can go: ‘We are in the process of transferring the case, it will take two days, the Special Cell needs time after that to study the case, we request extension of custody’. Meanwhile, everyone who actually indulged in violence are out on bail.
