JNU row: Lawyer chants ‘Vande Matram’ in Supreme Court

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday witnessed dramatic scene when a lawyer chanted ‘Vande Matram’ while it was hearing a plea on the attack on students and journalists in the Patiala House court complex.

Lawyer Rajeev Tadac shouted ‘Vande Matram’ disrupting the court proceedings.

“If this is what happens in the top court, what can we say?,” the Apex Court said while taking a serious note of the incident.

The lawyer was immediately taken into police custody. He later offered unconditional apology and was pardoned by the court.

However, Tadac and his colleague again chanted ‘Vande Matram’ and ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ when they came out of the courtroom.

Meanwhile, the apex court restricted the entry of people inside the Patiala House Court to 25. The bench led by Justice TS Thakur said only 25 journalists will be allowed inside the court premises, while only five will be allowed inside the courtroom.
