Empty stomach, incomplete paper work turns SC litigant temporarily insane

31
Supreme Court

The Hush Post: This is what an empty stomach and frustration in legal matters can lead to. A man’s boisterous behaviour in the Supreme Court premises led the police to intervene in the matter. The Supreme Court security informed the police that a man was lying inside the complex in an unconscious state, a police official told mediapersons.

The man was later identified as Babu, a resident of Coimbatore.

After an enquiry, it was learnt that Babu had lost his case in the Madras High Court. He had come to Delhi to file an appeal before the apex court five days ago, the official said.

The official said Babu was hungry and was also frustrated because he could not file his appeal because his papers were not complete.

Legal aid at the Supreme Court then advised him to come with the complete set of documents, after which he came to the parking area of the court and laid on the ground and started shouting and screaming, the officer said.

He was admitted to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. His condition is stated to be stable.
