1k cr Too Less for Litigant!
CJI JS Khehar found a litigant’s demand for ₹ 1,000 crore as costs in a defamation claim a bit too much. “`1,000 crore?” the CJI asked incredulously. But the litigant pronto wondered if it was too less for loss of his reputation. The CJI laughed off his claims against a J&K high court judge saying he knew the judge well enough to know that he wouldn’t even have one core let alone thousand crore.
