    Matter adjourned to next week. Kapil Sibal says that the petitioner KUWJ will implead the wife and daughter of Siddique Kappan in the habeas petition.

  • 2 Dec 2020 8:05 AM GMT

    Sibal : It is shocking what they are doing. In the affidavit numbers of relatives have been given who do not exist and have no relation to the accused.

  • 2 Dec 2020 8:05 AM GMT

    CJI Bobde : We have said earlier that the matter should go to High Court.

    Sibal : I agree. But there are exceptions.

  • 2 Dec 2020 8:05 AM GMT

    Solicitor General : The bail applications of the co-accused are pending in the lower court. The accused was found with an identity card of a newspaper which was shut three years ago. What kind of a journalist is he?

  • 2 Dec 2020 8:04 AM GMT

    Sibal : In Arnab Goswami's case, your lordships have interfered when the bail application was pending.

    I will rely on that.

  • 2 Dec 2020 8:04 AM GMT

    CJI : We understand this if the accused is saying this.

  • 2 Dec 2020 8:04 AM GMT

    Sibal : There are judgments which say the Court should consider the allegations in the FIR while considering release on bail (hints at the Arnab Goswami judgment)

  • 2 Dec 2020 8:04 AM GMT

    Solicitor General : The petitioner is a third party organization.

    Sibal : The FIR itself is false. He is arrested on the basis of false allegations.

  • 2 Dec 2020 8:04 AM GMT

    CJI asks Kapil Sibal, KUWJ's counsel : Are you willing to go to the Court below?

    Sibal : No. There are reasons. The case involves grave violations.

  • 2 Dec 2020 8:03 AM GMT

    Solicitor General tells the bench that the accused has met his lawyer.
