Prashant Bhushan guilty of contempt, rules SC

Aug 14, 2020 12:07 IST

The Supreme Court on Friday held advocate Prashant Bhushan guilty of contempt of court in the suo moto case taken against him over two of his tweets about the Chief Justice of India and the Supreme Court judges. The court observed that Bhushan committed serious contempt of the Court. The top court will hear him on sentence on August 20. Earlier on Monday, the court had refused to accept the "regret" offered by Prashant Bhushan over his comments and tweets. Bhushan had in two tweets criticised the CJI for posing with a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Earlier, in 2009, in a interview to Tehelka magazine, he had alleged that half of past 16 chief justices of India were corrupt.
