Observing that police should be allowed to investigate the matter and things to develop, the Delhi High Court said that the petition was premature.
This comes a day after ugly scenes broke out at the Patiala House Court in the national capital on Monday as lawyers attacked JNU students and mediapersons outside the premises.
