Bhushan's tweets did attack independence of judiciary, Dave to SC

Ashish Tripathi,

Senior advocate Dushyant Dave on Wednesday asked the Supreme Court to drop contempt proceedings against activist advocate Prashant Bhushan, making out a strong defence of the tweets made by him.

He submitted before a bench presided over by Justice Arun Mishra that there was nothing wrong in criticising the judiciary. Those tweets, including the one related to CJI sitting on a high-end bike, did not attack the independence of the judiciary or caused obstruction in administration of justice, he said.

Dave, also SC Bar Association President, referred to sexual harassment case against then CJI Ranjan Gogoi, saying all charges against the woman-employee were dropped and no contempt was issued against her.
