SG Tushar Mehta: "We haven't leaked it. In fact they should answer how was the entire case being discussed by their legal team across TV channels".
But his remand hasn't been extended so far, rotorts SG Mehta.
"We have been in this profession for years. So we know how all this works," says Sibal.
SG Mehta: That's not the sole basis. And the bail is rejected after going through records.
Sibal: But you haven't denied it.
Mehta: How do I deny your note? You haven't filed affidavit.
Sibal now referring to the allegations in the ECIR.
"Word by word, para by para has been copied in the judgment. Where is the application of mind by the judge?" says Sibal, reading out from the note & the HC judgment.
"We have not given this note," he says.
Sibal retorts let them say it is not the note they gave in HC or that they didn't give any note at all.
Mehta: This isn't fair.
Sibal: Why don't you deny the note? Say you didn't give it to the HC. Just saying that you didn't give it to us isn't enough.
Sibal responds #ED didn't even choose to file a formal counter affidavit but filed a note surreptitiously.
SG Tushar Mehta: It is for the internal purposes. The further investigation is still on.
"How did he get all this? Nothing was filed in the court but judge records all this. From where? Where is the case diary?" asks Sibal.
