Ram Jethmalani lambasts CBI lawyer in Amit Shah case!

The hearing of Amit Shah case in Supreme Court witnessed some fireworks between Shah's lawyer Ram Jethmalani and CBI's lawyer Vivek Tankha.

In the beginning of hearing there was an argument on who will start the arguments. Jethmalani said as the CBI has already concluded its arguments, it was his turn to start. Tankha on the other hand said that he is yet to finish his arguments.

Jethmalani also objected to the bench of Justice Aftab Alam and Justice Ranjana Desai hearing this case. Jethmalani said that the monitoring bench of Justice P Sathasivam and Justice R M Lodha should have heard the matter.

Jethmalani sought permission from Justice Alam to mention this point before the Chief Justice. Justice Alam responded by saying he could neither give the permission nor could he deny the permission. Jethmalani then agreed for hearing before the same bench.

During the arguments, the fireworks again errupted between Jethmalani and Tankha when the later mentioned about an internal note of the CBI which was produced by the defence as 'forged' one just to prove their case.

Jethmalani lambasted CBI lawyer by saying ''...My friend cant keep making irresponsible statements. I am sorry, this kind of advocacy is going on. If that document was a forged one, why not a single word has been mentioned in the CBI's petition in Supreme Court. Atleast you should be modest and apologise. I am sorry, you have not even read the record...''

CBI lawyer however continued his arguments accusing Amit Shah of pressurising the witnesses and tampering with the evidence. Tankha also tried to make a point saying that Amit Shah was the main conspirator in Sohrabuddin fake encounter.
