Delhi Police told Justice Pratibha Rani that they are moving remand application to seek Kanhaiya's police remand which is required to confront him with JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, who surrendered last night.

The court deferred the hearing till February 29 after Kanhaiya's advocates Kapil Sibal and Rebecca John asked to postpone the hearing as they will oppose the police remand application.

The police said as Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya surrendered last night following which they were taken into custody safely, now they need Kanhaiya's police custody. Kanhaiya is in judicial custody that will expire on March 2.
