Sasikala DA Case: SC pronounces verdict in just eight minutes
The two judges, Justices P C Ghose and Amitava Roy, reached the dias at 10.32 am in Court Number 6, which was jam- packed with a large number of advocates and media persons.
The pronouncement of the much- awaited verdict in the apex court on Tuesday, which decided the fate of AIADMK General Secretary V K Sasikala in the disproportionate assets case, was completed in about eight minutes, Press Trust of India reported.
The two judges, Justices P C Ghose and Amitava Roy, reached the dias at 10.32 am in Court Number 6, which was jam- packed with a large number of advocates and media persons, PTI added.
After the seal of the voluminous judgement was opened by the court staff, the two judges held discussion for a few moments.
Before pronouncing the judgement, Justice Ghose said “You can understand (that it is) too much of a fatty judgement. We have taken the burden of us.” Immediately Justice Ghose began reading the operative part of the judgement. It got over by 10.40 am.
As soon as Justice Ghose finished with reading the judgement, the silence of the courtroom turned into hustle and bustle with scribes and some advocates rushing out to give out the deliberation of the courtroom drama.
Amidst this dramatic situation, Justice Roy said he was making a supplementary judgement in concurrence with Justice Ghose.
“We have expressed deep concern about escalating menace of corruption in the society,” PTI quoted Justice Roy as saying.
