After the fresh round of attacks on journalists and the targeting of JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, Union Home Ministry on Wednesday asked the Delhi Police to submit a report on the incidents.
Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi spoke to Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi and asked him to send a detailed report on Wednesday itself. Bassi has been describing Monday’s incident as a minor scuffle. Mehrishi spoke to Bassi after violence broke out in the court. Kumar was assaulted by a group of people inside the Patiala court complex while some journalists also bore the brunt.
“If anyone violates law, action will be taken,” Mehrishi said.Asked about the earlier attack on mediapersons on Monday, he said investigation is going on into two FIRs registered in that connection. “Action will be taken as per law,” he said.
