In Court, Kapil Sibal 'Disappears'. Cue Banter From Harish Salve
A tense hearing in the Supreme Court in a case involving allegations against former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh took an amusing detour when senior lawyer Kapil Sibal, representing the leader, went off screen for some moments.
Mr Sibal, representing Anil Deshmukh, vanished just as he was reading out a previous judgment to support his argument that the allegations against his client were all based on hearsay.
"He (Mr Sibal) appears to be gone," noted Justice SK Kaul, heading the Supreme Court bench.
Senior lawyer Harish Salve quipped: "Even the system crashed hearing his arguments."
