A day after lawyers attacked journalists and students while a Delhi BJP MLA assaulted a CPI member at the Patiala House Courts complex in the heart of the Capital, the Supreme Court listed for urgent hearing Wednesday a petition on the violence at the courts complex.

On Tuesday, senior lawyer Indira Jaising mentioned the petition before Chief Justice T S Thakur who agreed to have it listed for hearing Wednesday.

The petition filed by N D Jaiprakash, an alumnus of JNU who was injured in the attack, also sought directives to ensure the safety of JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar — booked for sedition, Kanhaiya has to be produced in court at the end of his police custody.
