The Supreme Court on Friday concurred to rethink the bail plea of Sahara Chief Subrata Roy. SC earlier ordered him to sent back to jail.
Sahara apologized on behalf of its lawyer Rajeev Dhavan as he used immoderate language in front of the bench. Then, the court agreed to reconsider Subrata’s bail plea.
“I regret Dhavan’s uncalled for statement and tender unconditional apology from core of heart,” Subrata Roy told the top court.
Representing Sahara, Kapil Sibal also gave his personal apology to the bench and claimed that it would never happen again.
Earlier today, the court rejected the interim bail plea of the Sahara Chief and ordered him to go back to jail.
The SC bench passed the same order as the bench got annoyed by the arguments of senior advocate Rajeev Dhawan. Sahara apologized for the same to the bench.
The bench headed by Chief Justice TS Thakur deplored Dhawan’s manner of addressing the court and said some people play with the dignity of the court.
The CJI said there are some senior advocates who are disrespectful to the court.
“Seriously considering withdrawing the designation of such lawyers,” the CJI said.
Sahara said that Dhawan spoke extra and made unnecessary comments. After the apology, the SC moved the fresh application demanding for Roy’s bail from the court.
