Kanhaiya Kumar doesn’t want just bail, will challenge arrest

NEW DELHI: JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar will spend at least three more nights in Tihar Jail as his petition for release is expected to be heard by Delhi High Court only next week. Day-long attempts by his legal team, which began with the Supreme Court refusing to take up the plea, couldn’t ensure a hearing in the high court on Friday.

Kumar’s lawyers do not want to just apply for bail but file a writ petition under Article 226 of the Constitution seeking to question the FIR against the student leader under sedition law as violative of his fundamental rights, along lines similar to what they moved before the SC.
