The court also sought details of action taken against the police personnel.

The observation was made by a division bench comprising of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice NS Sanjay Gowda.

The sedition case was filed over a play opposing the Citizenship (Amendment) Act staged last year at Shaheen Education Society.

the Headmistress of the school, as well as a parent of a child, were arrested. They were later released on bail.
