Kanhaiya Kumar assault outside court seems “organised and pre-planned”: NHRC

Coming down heavily on Delhi Police, an NHRC probe team today said that the physical assault on JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar in the court premises appeared to have been “organised and pre-planned”.

It also said Kumar was subjected to psychological pressure and was made to issue a statement before he appeared in the court, owing allegiance to Constitution which was dictated by police.

“Kanhaiya Kumar was abused and physically assaulted by some persons dressed as advocates in the Patiala House court premises on February 17.

“He was even physically assaulted inside the adjoining court room in the presence of police who did not do anything to prevent the assault or apprehend the attackers even though they were identified by Kanhaiya Kumar then and there. The physical assault on Kumar in the court premises appears to be organized and pre-planned,” a report submitted to the NHRC by a fact-finding team of the Commission said. .
