"We are not concerned with other incidents. We are only concerned with the episode that had happened on February 15," a bench comprising Justices J Chelameswar and AM Sapre said that when a lawyer on behalf of Karkardooma Bar Association sought to intervene in the matter.
During the hearing, the bench perused various reports filed by Delhi Police, Bar Council of India, Delhi High Court Registry and a six-member lawyers' panel. "There are allegations and counter-allegations" and the reports be exchanged and objections be filed before the matter is heard on March 10, the bench said.
The apex bar body, Bar Council of India, sought the court's response as to whether it should proceed with the proposed inquiry against lawyers who had allegedly participated in the violent incidents in the Patiala House court complex on February 15 and 17 when jailed JNUSU leader Kanhaiya Kumar was being produced in connection with the sedition case. "Let all the concerned receive reports. Today we are not saying anything on it," the bench said.
