Sr. Adv. Huzefa Ahmadi making arguments on behalf of the petitioner.
Petitioners submit that they will conclude their arguments today.
Ahmadi reading out from ADM Jabalpur and the infamous "maternal treatment of detenues" observation by Supreme Court with respect to political prisoners during national emergency.
The dissent of Justice Khanna is the law today after this Court categorically overruled ADM Jabalpur, Ahmadi submits.
Here they are saying we can move the court but they (Govt) need not produce detentions orders or reasons on the ground of National Security, Ahmadi.
Presumption of criminality on grounds of suspicion is no longer valid in our jurisprudence, Ahmadi.
He says: It should not be that all those who are appearing on this side (petitioners) are viewed as against integrity of nation.
"Are you criticising the Supreme Court for the delay", asks Justice NV Ramana.
"Not at all. I am criticising the Govt for not lifting the restrictions", says Dave.
Dave reiterates his grievance is not against Court but against govt.
Justices Ramana and Gavai questions Centre on absence of law officers in the matter.
"Frankly, even submissions of the Petitioners have been repetitive", Justice BR Gavai.
"If Solicitor General cannot appear tomorrow, alternate arrangements have to be made. We will not adjourn the matter", Bench says.
Their justification is security of State will be affected, Dave
Only one restriction was imposed. That protesters should not wear mask and that was struck down yesterday by their Supreme Court, Dave
CJI Balakrishnan authored one of the most beautiful judgments on right to remain silent, Dave.
Such cavalier and casual approach. All they wanted was to buy time from court. They have not gone into the law, Dushyant Dave.
"I am not saying these are your arguments. This is from Centre's counter. I am sure it might not have been settled under the supervision of learned counsel like you Mr. Mehta", Dave.
"It is my counter", Mehta
People have a right to know in a democracy, RTI was a big revolution, Dave.
