Update 29th of January
Judgment in the case of Rachita Taneja adjourned for 3 weeks
Following a request to distinguish the judgment of the case from that of the comedian Kunal Kamra made by the cartoonist’s lawyer, Mukul Rohatgi, the court granted three weeks of additional time to provide a written defense.
The hearing was an opportunity for the lawyer to recall that the foundations of the Supreme Court are strong enough to be able to accept criticism without being considered as contempt. Agreeing with the layer’s comment regarding its foundations, the judges nevertheless replied laconically that nowadays everyone is going a little too far.
