Below are excerpts of what he said to @IndiaToday Rohatgi: I remember coming back from the Courts on the last day after installing the current Madhya Pradesh government. That was the last case I did and the last verdict which was pronounced by Justice Chandrachud at about 5:30 pm. After that, I never went back to court.

He then got agitated that he was being ignored& began messing with our equipment
