Owing to his ill health, the Supreme Court placed him under house arrest in November 2022.
Counsel: Mr. Raju is arguing part heard in Court No. 2. It Might take a day.
Senior Advocate Nitya Ramakrishnan: That Court is sitting until 1 PM…He is 72 years old…this is not fair; last time, I did not say anything. We cannot continue like this.
