A vacation bench of the Bombay High Court had a marathon sitting on Wednesday for over 12 hours to hear the cases listed before it.

A division bench comprising Justices Sharukh Jimi Kathawalla and SP Tavade was in session from 10.30 AM till late into night. By the time the bench wound up the proceedings, the clock ticked 11.15 PM.

There was no recess for lunch or dinner during the sitting. The judges munched on light snacks in between.

The last case taken by the bench today was the petition filed by Maharashtra Government in relation to the CBI enquiry on Param Bir Singh's complaint against former Home Minister.

Senior Advocate Rafiq Dada and Additional Solicitor General SV Raju made submissions during the late night hearing for about half an hour, before the bench adjourned the matter to Friday for further hearing.

After this matter, the bench rose, completing the board which listed 80 cases. On account of the COVID situation, the bench heard the cases virtually through video-conferencing.

Justice Kathawalla is known for working beyond the regular work hours. While sitting as a single bench, he has held hearings past midnight on certain occasions.

In May 2018, Justice Kathawalla, while sitting in a single bench, had held an overnight session till 3.30 AM to clear the cases listed before him on a vacation bench.
