The top court dismissed his plea saying that the accused persons were not in a position to seek such “privileges” and to make such “extraordinary demands”. The counsel appearing for Chandrasekhar said that there are 28 cases pending against his client across the country and more than 10 lawyers have been engaged and the appointment time allotted as per jail rules is not sufficient.

The bench objected to this submission and said, “You give the names of the lawyers and we will ask the jail authorities to allow your lawyers to remain in jail. What kind of statement are you making in this court? Do you want someone Privileges in prison?”
