The Supreme Court is due to decide on the sentence to be imposed on Advocate Prashant Bhushan, who was found guilty of criminal contempt of Court for two tweets criticising the judiciary on August 14.
At the time, the Bench of Justices Arun Mishra, BR Gavai and Krishna Murari did not pass orders on the question of sentence and instead posted the matter on this aspect for today.
On the eve of this sentencing hearing, Advocate Bhushan preferred an application yesterday praying that the Court defer today's hearing given that he will be filing a review plea against the August 14 verdict.
