Centre, AG take different stance over punishing Prashant Bhushan for 'contempt' tweets in CBI case

Updated : February 06, 2019 09:31 PM IST

Calling Venugopal 'Bhismpitama' and magnanimous in not seeking punishment for Bhushan, the Centre said it wants that punishment should be awarded to Bhushan as deterrence.
A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Navin Sinha said however that punishment for a lawyer should be the last resort, and referred to its recent verdict in which it held that contempt is 'Brahmastra' which is to be used sparingly.
