SC to hear matter concerning violence at Jamia Milia, Aligarh Muslim University

  • The Supreme Court also agreed to hear on 18 December a batch of petitions challenging the validity of the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019
  • Senior advocate Indira Jaising on Monday urged Chief Justice SA Bobde to take suo motu cognizance of police action against the students

The Supreme Court will on Tuesday hear the matter pertaining to violence at Jamia Milia University and Aligarh Muslim University, where students were protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act.

Senior advocate Indira Jaising on Monday urged Chief Justice SA Bobde to take suo motu cognizance of police action against the students.

The bench said it will take up the suo motu cognizance matter on Tuesday, but warned that protests, violence and destruction of public properties cannot continue further.

"Supreme Court won't be bullied, can't be held to ransom while public properties are destroyed. Just because they are students, they can't take law in their own hands," said Chief Justice Bobde.

The Supreme Court also agreed to hear on 18 December a batch of petitions challenging the validity of the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019.
