File pending with Home Department says Delhi PoliceNew Delhi, September 18A court here has asked the Delhi Government to decide within one month on the sanction to prosecute former JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar and others in a sedition case.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Manish Khurana said the delay in taking a decision on the matter had caused wastage of judicial time as the case had been listed and adjourned repeatedly since the filing of the charge sheet.
The court passed the directions after the Delhi Police informed the court that the file regarding sanction was pending with the Home Department.
“The time which is being taken to finalise the issue of sanction or otherwise, has wasted judicial time as the case had been listed and adjourned repeatedly since the filing of the charge sheet.
The court then posted the matter for October 25, by which the reports have to be filed.
