Kolkata: In the Narada Scam Case, 4 heavyweights – Firhad Hakim, Subrata Mukherjee, Madan Mitra and Sovan Chatterjee – were granted interim bail. Disagreements arose between the two High Court judges over the bail order. Justice Arijit Banerjee granted interim bail to the accused in the case. But in today’s hearing, acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal opposed granting bail to the four. According to the lawyers, the questions and answers of the day were well received in the courtroom. The High Court was engrossed in the fight of the Zanderel lawyers. And during that hearing, the words of Kolkata’s Rasgolla and Kulchar also came up during the hearing.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said while defending the accused’s lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi, “You are opposing your statement.” “You don’t know what to say,” said Singhvi. “Whenever I see you, I want to oppose you,” said Snow. However, after that, Tushar softened the tone and said, “We are very good friends. The discussion we have is very light.”
The Solicitor General, however, requested the High Court to uphold the earlier judgment. However, Singhvi said, “If both sides are dissatisfied with the directive, it should be amended.” However, Chief Justice of the High Court Bindal, after hearing the questions and answers of the two lawyers, said, “It is good to see that the war lawyers are talking lightly among themselves.”
“If it was a physical court, we could have a cup of tea after the hearing,” said Siddhartha Luthra, another lawyer for the accused. At the same time, Tushar Mehta said, ‘Not just tea and coffee. I will request Kalyan Banerjee to take us to Calcutta to eat kulcha and rasgolla. ‘
Kalyan, however, took no time and immediately said, ‘You are all my guests.’ Abhishek Manu Singhvi immediately laughed and said, “But don’t arrest the Solicitor General.” Despite the unprecedented complexities surrounding the bail of four heavyweights in the Narad case, this light-hearted ‘chat’ of judges and lawyers also dulled the serious discussion for a while.
