The Delhi government on Wednesday filed reply in JNU Sedition case and said that case file is pending with the Home Secretary.
The Patiala House Court reserved order till 3 pm today.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Manish Khurana was hearing a sedition case under Section IPC 124A and other section of IPC against former JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya and others.
On the previous hearing, the CMM had asked the concerned Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) to file a status report on grant of sanctions by Sep 18.
It is pertinent to note that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Sep 6 had said that Delhi govt had not taken any decision on the prosecution sanction in the JNU sedition case.
“The Delhi government has not yet taken any decision. The authority concerned (in the Home Department) will take a final decision after studying all the available information. We will produce the decision before the court,” the Chief Minister had said.
