Office bearers of the leftist JNU student union found guilty of contempt of court by Delhi HC

The office bearers of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) have been held guilty of contempt of court by the Delhi High Court on Tuesday, reports legal website Bar and Bench.

As per the report, the case dates back to 9 August 2017, when the High Court passed an order allowing the students to protest in the campus, with the condition that no protests would be held within 100 metres of the administrative block.

The court had also directed that if any protest ended up happening within the 100-metre radius, the university authorities would be free to seek police help for the maintenance of law and order on the campus.

The students though didn’t seem to have paid heed to that, when the university introduced a new attendance policy, which made 75 per cent attendance mandatory for all courses.

The students, as a result, protested against the move and the administration supposedly agreed to hear their side on 23 February. The report claims that the meeting ended up getting postponed indefinitely, which resulting in protests near the administrative building.

Hence the JNU administration filed a petition in the High Court claiming a violation of the court’s order. As a result, four members of the student union namely President Geeta Kumari, Vice President Simone Zoya Khan, General Secretary Duggirala Srikrishna and Joint Secretary Shubhanshu Singh haven been held guilty.

Besides holding the office bearers guilty, the High Court judge also imposed a fine of Rs 2,000 on them:
