On being questioned by the court, Delhi Police said that they will get sanction approval within 10 days.

According to the Criminal Procedure Code, in case of offences against the State (like waging war against the Government of India, sedition etc.), without the sanction from the home department, the court cannot take cognizance of the police’s charge sheet.
