Kumar has moved the sessions court seeking regular bail as his six-month interim bail is scheduled to expire on September 1.

Two more JNU students, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, have also moved their bail applications which will be heard on Saturday as well.

In his bail application, Kumar has assured that he will adhere to every condition imposed by the court, adding that he has not violated any of the conditions that were imposed by the Delhi High Court while granting him interim bail on March 2.

While granting the interim bail, the high court had warned Kumar against participating "actively or passively in any activity which may be termed as anti-national".

Kumar was arrested on sedition charges for taking part in a controversial event on Kashmir held on the university campus on February 9.

In his fresh bail plea Kumar has stated that he had fully cooperated with Delhi Police in investigation and joined the probe whenever required. Kumar also maintained that he has not interfered in the ongoing probe.

Kumar also mentioned that he provided password of his mobile phone to Delhi Police when it asked for it.

Kumar's bail plea was filed by advocate Sushil Bajaj, who said the student leader deserves a regular bail because so far Delhi Police has not filed any chargesheet in the case.
