New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday decided to hear tomorrow a plea for contempt action against three lawyers who were allegedly caught on camera boasting that they had thrashed JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar while he was in police lock-up at the Patiala House court complex.

The plea calls for contempt action and SIT probe against lawyers, accused of beating JNUSU president and others at Patiala House court complex.

In a video broadcast on a news channel, the lawyers were shown claiming that they thrashed Kanhaiya for around three hours while he was in police custody.

Taking note of the footage, police then issued notices to lawyers Vikram Singh Chauhan, Yashpal Singh and Om Sharma to join investigation, in connection with the violence in Patiala House court complex on February 15 and 17 in which JNU students, teachers and journalists were attacked.
