The bench asked pointed questions to Swami Agnivesh's lawyers. Court also asked why should they interfere in the matter at this stage. "...These people will be careful in future. if we start quashing charges then they will not realise. One makes a statement, its printed and widely circulated. You achieved ur purpose now you realise..."
