Chennai: Rejecting pleas by agitating advocates to immediately hear their petition regarding alleged police excesses in the court premises on 19 February, the Madras high court has asked them to return to work.
When senior lawyers TV Ramanujum and R Krishnamurthy pleaded on Wednesday before a bench comprising chief justice HL Gokhale and justice FM Ibrahim Kallifulla that the matter be taken up immediately, they were told their petition was being heard by a three-judge bench headed by justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya. “When a bench is seized of the matter it is not proper for it to be withdrawn from that bench,” Justice Gokhale said.
