The plea, which was mentioned before a bench of Justices BD Ahmed and RK Gauba, also sought a judicial inquiry in the entire case, soon after a group of men in lawyers' robes thrashed students and mediapersons in the nearby Patiala House court complex.

The petition, filed by one Ranjana Agnihotri, alleged that Delhi Police was not investigating the case properly and the matter should be transferred to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

The bench, however, posted the matter for hearing tomorrow observing that the Delhi Police was already conducting a probe and would take the case to its logical conclusion.

"The police is probing it. What is the urgency? List it for tomorrow," the bench said. The petitioner's counsel, advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain, told the bench that media houses should be directed to place on record the video footage of the programme held in JNU on February 9 in which anti-India slogans were allegedly raised.

Kanhaiya was arrested on February 12 in connection with a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy over an event at the prestigious university against hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

The same day, he was remanded to three-day police custody by a court here after the police said his and five other absconding accused's alleged links with terrorist groups were being probed.
