The Supreme Court has
expressed its disappointment towards Delhi Police for seeking adjournment in the Delhi riots  case due to the unavailability of the Solicitor General of India.

The bench comprising of Justice Kishan Kaul and Justice AS Oka told the Central Government counsel that of the Solicitor General is unavailable, alternative arrangements should be made.

The bench was going through the appeals filed by the Delhi Police against the order by the Delhi High Court order which
granted bail to student activists Devangana Kalita, Natasha Narwal and Asif Iqbal Tanha.

Some accused in the case Impleadment applications has also been filed by some co-accused on the Supreme Court direction that the Delhi High Court’s judgment should not be used as a precedent in other cases.

Earlier in the day, when the matter was called out for the first time, no one appeared for the Delhi Police, which reports to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs.
The matter was then  decided to be put for the later part of the day. When the matter came up again at 4 PM, Advocate Rajat Nair who appeared for the Centre said that he rushed to attend the matter.

Nair told the bench to have the matter heard next week as SGI will be there.

Justice Kaul, visibly displeased, remarked if he thinks that the bench is full of vellas (Jobless). In a tone of anger Justice Kaul said does Nair think the judges sit here waiting for them to come and go as per their will.

Advocate Nair  apologised for it.

Justice Kaul further remarked that if SGI isn’t available,somebody else should come.He said there ought to be  alternate arrangements.
SG must be required in many matters. Is this a matter for the Solicitor General? I don’t even know that.

The court then said that once again the position is as on the last date of hearing. When the matter was called on the first occasion, the Solicitor General was not there and when it is called again it is stated that he was present sometime before and has again gone away.

In strict words the bench said thatIf during the next date of hearing alternative arrangements are not made, it will presume that the  government has nothing to say in the matter.

The matter has been Listed to 21st February.

Justice Kaul added that it is the last chance given and of this time there is any issue then no requests shall be last chance.
