Of the many WTF elements gleaned from media reports of bail proceedings in the Delhi High Court, this one takes the cake:
Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Tushar Mehta said that similar slogans were raised in Jadavpur University after JNU. If Kanhaiya is granted bail then such incidents will get a boost.
Seriously — how did this gentleman become a lawyer — much less Narendra Modi’s favored lawyer?
Also from the court proceedings:
“Do you have video evidence that Kanhaiya was raising anti-national slogans?” asked the court at which police denied of having any video in this regard.
“When your policemen were present there in the campus in civil dress why don’t they take cognizance when anti-national slogans were raised? Why did not they video record it?” asked the court.
The Delhi police also say that a JNU official has testified that Kanhaiya called upon cancellation of the programme and further said the programme will continue despite the cancellation of the permission.
