A group of lawyers assaulted👊 journalists and JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar when he arrived at Patiala House court🏣 on Wednesday. The Union home ministry asked Delhi Police👮🏼 for an immediate report on the incident. Commissioner BS Bassi👮🏼 denied❌ that Kanhaiya was “beaten up.” He said that using “heavy force” against lawyers would be counter-productive😕 and inappropriate. Bassi said, “I do not think he was beaten up👊. There was lot of jostling. We expected jostling and considering that he was escorted by a requisite number of police officers👮🏼. He was taken care of by our officers.” He said that the officers physically covered him and protected✋ him. Bassi also said, “Lawyers are officers of the court🏤. When we are dealing with officers..., unless... use of heavy force would have been ❌inappropriate in this case."
