New Delhi: Declining the judicial probe into the police brutal act on the students of Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University who were on the protest, Supreme Court directed the petitioners to approach respective jurisdictional High Courts. Adding to this, the apex court stated that the High Court will take necessary measures to appoint committees for fact-finding.
Hearing the arguments of lawyers Indira Jaising, Colin Gonsalves, Mehmood Pracha, Sanjay Hedge regarding the violence against students, a special bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde, Justices BR Gavai and Surya Kant made it clear that the apex court doesn’t want to invest time in fact-findings. The Supreme Court also declined to provide any protection from arrest to those who are found to be involved in the violent protests. “We are sure that High Courts will look into the matter after hearing both sides. Chief Justices of High Courts will respond adequately,” stated the Chief Justice
