Kejri to meet President on court violence

After the second round of violence at Patiala House Courts on Wednesday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wants to discuss the issue with President Pranab Mukjherjee.

Kejriwal also hit out at Police Commissioner B S Bassi’s conduct and questioned whose orders was he following.

The AAP leader also renewed his demand for control over Delhi Police and tweeted in Hindi: “Those shouting slogans against Mother India and pseudo-nationalist goons would have been behind bars had Delhi Police been under our control.”  Within an hour of lawyers fomenting trouble on the Patiala House complex – the second time in three days – Kejriwal took to Twitter to condemn it.

“Delhi law and order situation fast deteriorating. Have sought time from Hon'ble President to discuss the situation,” tweeted Kejriwal, a day after writing to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene in the JNU matter.

Meanwhile, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) issued notice seeking a report in two weeks from the Union Home Secretary, Delhi Chief Secretary, the JNU and Delhi Police Commissioner on allegations of beating up mediapersons and students outside Patiala House Court on Monday.

An NHRC statement said Kanhaiya Kumar has denied the allegations saying he went to the spot only to intervene in a clash between two groups.
