Supreme Court reserves order on Prashant Bhushan’s sentence in contempt case

The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved its order on the sentence of Prashant Bhushan’s contempt case.

Supreme Court earlier this month held Bhushan guilty of contempt of court for his tweets related to CJI Bobde and his opinion on the role of the last four CJIs amid the state of affairs in the nation.

Supreme Court earlier today gave thirty minutes to Prashant Bhushan to think over his stand of not expressing regret over his tweets against the judiciary.

Bhushan had remained defiant that there would be no change in his stance and maintained that his remarks are merely constructive criticism meant to convey to the court. He also said that public expression of these beliefs was in line with his higher obligations as a citizen and a loyal officer to this court.
