Modi's Fascism

Police protected fasctst BJP lawyers – ‘Police Let Attacker Leave’, say Kanhaiya Kumar

kanhaiya-kumar-jnu_650x400NEW DELHI: Police in Delhi’s Patiala House Court allowed the man who assaulted him to walk away, JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar told the team of lawyers sent by the Supreme Court after violence broke out on the premises for the second time in one week, last Wednesday.
In a video that was filmed by Haren Rawal, one of the lawyers sent to the court, Mr Kumar states that he was assaulted while being brought in for his hearing. “I was punched, kicked, thrown to the ground,” he says.
“A mob dressed like lawyers were waiting to attack me. I was brutally beaten up. Police who were escorting me were also thrashed,” he says in the video. He says the attackers were “highly politically motivated”.
But when he and a professor from JNU identified one of the attackers, police did not stop the man and allowed him to leave, Mr Kumar says. “They just allowed him to walk away,” he says.
The JNU student union leader has been arrested under charges of sedition in connection with a controversial event on campus where “anti-national” slogans were allegedly raised. He denies the charges.
The violence at the court on two days last week – February 15 and 17 – drew widespread condemnation as lawyers were caught on camera beating Mr Kumar, students and teachers from JNU and journalists.
The incident had provoked the Supreme Court to rush six senior lawyers for a ground assessment. Yesterday it issued notices to the Centre, Delhi Police and lawyers involved in the violence.
Delhi Police, which arrested BJP lawmaker OP Sharma and three lawyers before releasing them on bail immediately for the violence, has come under sharp criticism for its failure to prevent the attacks.

‘Were Your Men Sleeping?’ Cops Asked To Explain JNU Court Violence
New Delhi:  Confronted by a team of lawyers sent by the Supreme Court, policemen at Delhi’s Patiala House Courts were able to offer little explanation for the violence that unfolded for the second time last week when arrested JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar was assaulted while being produced for his hearing.
In a video filmed by Haren Rawal, one of the lawyers sent to the court last Wednesday for a ground report, Mr Kumar stated that he was brutally assaulted while being brought in for his hearing. “I was punched, kicked, thrown to the ground,” he said.
The man who attacked him was then allowed to walk away by policemen in the court, the 28-year-old student leader accused of sedition and a professor from JNU said, drawing furious reactions from the group.
“How do you allow the attack to take place in court premises? Your men are posted everywhere? So what were they doing? Sleeping?” a policeman can be heard being asked in front of the panel that included senior advocates Rajeev Dhawan, Kapil Sibal, Dushyant Dave and Haren Rawal.
“How can he (the attacker) go away from the court premises? Do your men have instructions not to intervene?” the policemen are asked, drawing squirming responses.
Several policemen, including three Station House Officers or SHOs who are asked to explain the assault on Mr Kumar can be heard saying they were not present when it happened. They also fail to name any policemen who were there.
“The attack didn’t happen inside the court, it happened outside,” one of the policeman claimed – instantly challenged by a JNU professor and other witnesses. The police have said that a last-minute change in plans to produce Mr Kumar resulted in confusion leading to the violence.
The violence at the court on two days last week – February 15 and 17 – drew widespread condemnation as a bunch of lawyers were caught on camera beating Mr Kumar, students and teachers from JNU and journalists.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court issued notices to the Centre, Delhi Police and lawyers involved in the violence.
