The court expressed its shock when it found out that the university knows nothing about those protesting students against whom the contempt case was filed. The court has adjourned the next hearing to 21 December.
The High Court of Delhi had given an order on 9 August, 2017, which restrained the students from protesting within 100 meters of the administrative block of the university and affecting the daily working.
The recent JNU students’ agitation against fee hike had affected the day to day working of administration block.
