Supreme Court remembers former attorney general GE Vahanvati
The court held a full court reference for former attorney general Vahanvati who passed away on 2 September
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday held a full court reference for former attorney general G.E. Vahanvati, who passed away on 2 September.
A full court reference is a commemorative event involving all judges of the court and lawyers, including the senior officer of the bar like the attorney general, held in the chief justice’s court.
Vahanvati had a career spanning over four decades, and held important positions as a government counsel—advocate general for Maharashtra, solicitor general of India and finally, the attorney general.
Earlier this week, the court, while hearing the coal block scam, lauded the efforts of Vahanvati while perusing the documents.
