On Friday the Supreme Court of India adjourned the criminal contempt case filed against comedian Kunal Kamra over his tweets criticizing the Judiciary for two weeks.
A Bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan permitted the petitioner’s request to adjourn the matter to enable him to respond to Kamra’s counter-affidavit.
The Advocate appearing for the petitioner informed the Supreme Court that he had received Kamra’s affidavit on Friday morning and therefore sought an adjournment to peruse the reply. The request was allowed by the Bench comprising Justice R. Subhash Reddy and Justice M.R. Shah and the matter was adjourned for two weeks.
A picture of the Supreme Court dressed in saffron colour with the flag of the ruling party, the BJP, was posted by Kamra along with several other controversial remarks against the Supreme Court such as ‘Supreme Court of the country is the most Supreme jokes of the country.’
