ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

A on Thursday will continue to hear the plea on the Anti-slogan raised in University's Ramjas College.

On September 5, the Tis Hazari warned an advocate, who sought lodging of an FIR alleging anti-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 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.

On July 19, the Court pulled up the Crime Branch of the Police for not filing a status report for the last six months in connection with Ramjas college clash where the slogans were raised.

The Crime Branch then sought more time to file a status report on the issue.

The court was hearing plea seeking lodging of FIR against those who allegedly raised anti-slogans.

The plea was filed by an advocate alleging that massive anti-slogans were raised by the students of All Students Association (AISA) and Students' Federation of (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.
