    Justice Mishra says "let us leave this to an appropriate bench".

    Dhavan : How much of the Court's free speech jurisprudence has to be read into suo moto contempt powers? This is an important question in this case.

    Justice Mishra says that some of the questions raised by Bhushan are already settled.
