Lawyer and Scooter

The Allahabad High Court on Friday declined to hear a matter because the petitioner's counsel was riding a scooter while trying to address the court through video conference.

A Division Bench of Justices Manoj Kumar Gupta and Syed Aftab Husain Rizvi, cautioned the counsel and remarked that he should not repeat the act in future.

"Counsel for the petitioner tried to address the Court while riding a scooter. The Court therefore declines to hear him. He should be careful in future even if the hearing is to take place through video conferencing," the order passed by the Court said.

The matter was, therefore, adjourned and listed on July 12.
