New Delhi: A day after JNU students' union president Kanhaiya Kumar was sent to Tihar Jail, a protest march from Mandi House to Jantar Mantar was organised on Thursday.
Also, the protesting students were seen wearing T-shirts with a slogan - 'Mera Yaar Kanhaiya' (Kanhaiya is my friend).
Reportedly, the 'Mera Yaar Kanhaiya' T-shirt were being sold for Rs 150.
Earlier, in the day, Kanhaiya Kumar moved the Supreme Court seeking to be released on bail. The apex court bench comprising Justice J. Chelameswar and Justice Abhay Manohar Sapre said they will hear the plea at 10.30 a.m. on Friday.
Lawyer Vrinda Grover, who filed the plea on behalf of Kanhaiya Kumar, said in the petition that since the atmosphere in the Patiala House court complex was not conducive for moving the plea application, Kanhaiya Kumar was invoking his right under Article 32 to move the Supreme court directly for bail.
Under Article 32, a citizen can move the Supreme Court for enforcing his fundamental rights.
