On September 5, the Tis Hazari court warned an advocate, who sought lodging of an FIR alleging anti-national sloganeering at the Ramjas College in February, against mixing this incident with the JNU case in which sedition charge was slapped against some students.
"These are two different cases. Do not mix JNU matter with the DU case," the court said.
On August 30, the court, after it was shown footage of alleged "anti-national" sloganeering at Ramjas College, said that sedition charges cannot be pressed on the basis of an unauthenticated and unreliable video.
The Crime Branch then sought more time to file a status report on the issue.
The plea was filed by an advocate alleging that massive anti-national slogans were raised by the students of All India Students Association (AISA) and Students' Federation of India (SFI) at Ramjas College.
On February 22, the AISA and the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) engaged into a scuffle over cancellation of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Umar Khalid's talk at the Ramjas College.
