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.

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.
