Gujarat High Court on Monday chose not to initiate suo motu cognizance in Sunday's attack on students hailing from foreign countries at a university hostel in Ahmedabad. A division bench of Chief Justice Sunita Agarwal and Justice Aniruddha P Mayee said their role was that of constitutional courts, not investigative bodies. The justices also underscored that none of the matters were subject to Public Interest Litigation after lawyer KR Koshti requested that the incident be considered for the same.
