The Delhi High Court will hear on Monday a petition seeking a CBI investigation monitored by the court about the alleged sexual abuse of students during a cultural festival at the Women's Gargi College of the University of Delhi last week.
The guilty plea was mentioned Friday for an urgent hearing before a bank of judges G S Sistani and C Hari Shankar who said it will be included by February 17.
The lawyer and petitioner M L Sharma said that nothing had been done so far. Police registered the FIR on February 9 and arrested 10 people just two days ago, he said.
When the bank asked what the urgency was, the lawyer had apprehended that the evidence could be destroyed.
The statement was filed Thursday, hours after the Supreme Court refused to consider the petition and asked the petitioner to move the superior court.
Sharma has sought the preservation of all video recordings and CCTV camera footage of the university campus at his request.
The petition has also sought the arrest of people behind the "planned criminal conspiracy."
Ten people, between the ages of 18 and 25, were arrested by police on February 12 in connection with the incident.
On February 6, a group of men stormed Gargi College during the festival & # 39; Reverie & # 39; and allegedly fiddled, harassed and abused students who claimed that security officers were watching.
The incident came to light after some students went to Instagram to narrate their terrible experience and claimed that security personnel did nothing to control rebel groups.
"It is a clear criminal conspiracy devised by the political party to deploy defendants to provoke the Delhi public to vote in their favor. Despite the presence of the Delhi police … on February 6, neither the director nor other state authorities tried to stop and arrest the accused people, "said Sharma's PIL.
The petition added that "Jai Shri Ram's deliberate songs reveal that it is a political and planned conspiracy" and blamed the Prime Minister of Delhi for not taking any action against the accused.
According to the police, a case was registered under sections 452 of the IPC (home invasion after preparation for the damage, assault or unlawful restraint), 354 (assault or criminal force on the woman with the intention of indignating her modesty), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult a woman's modesty) and 34 (acts performed by several people in support of a common intention).
