The respondent sought time to examine the judgment in Ravi Prakash Gupta case.

The petitioner further informed the bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar that JNU stayed the result saying matter is sub-judice.

The bench said: “How can you stay the result. We never stayed the whole results, we only categorically stated that the results of PWD candidates should be stayed.

“Staying the declaration of results doesn’t it tantamount to wrong practice.” said the bench.

The next hearing of the matter is on September 25.
