New Delhi: The Apex Court will on Wednesday give an urgent hearing to a plea that is seeking action against those involved in beating journalists and JNU students and teachers in the Patiala House Court complex on Monday.
Several journalists and JNU students and teachers were thrashed by lawyers inside the Patiala House court complex where Kanhaiya Kumar, leader of the JNU students union, was to be produced on Monday after being arrested on sedition charges.

Following this N D Jaiprakash had filed a plea demanding action against those involved in violence and the Court had accepted the same on Tuesday and posted the matter for today.

The petition is also calling on the court to direct such security measures in the court complex that no person becomes a victim of violence in future.

Several journalists also met Home Minister Rajnath Singh and demanded a probe into the incident.

Police have said two FIRs have been registered against unnamed persons in connection with the attack.

Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi has said that the alleged negligence on the part of police is being probed and the guilty will face legal action.
