Mehta is at present the additional solicitor general mainly representing the central government in the Supreme Court.

An apex court bench of Chief Justice H.L. Dattu and Justice Arun Mishra while rejecting Bhatt’s plea asked the trial court to complete the hearing as expeditiously as possible.

The verdict was pronounced by Justice Mishra.

It also rejected Bhatt’s plea for an SIT probe into the allegation that he had forced his official driver to file an affidavit that he drove him to then chief minister Narendra Modi’s official residence on Feb 27, 2002 where Modi allegedly asked his officers to let people vent their anger in the wake of Godhra train carnage.

    WHAT IS THE SANCTITY OF THE DIRECTION GIVEN TO THE LOWER COURT SAYING “complete the hearing as expeditiously as possible.” EVEN SEVERAL SUCH DIRECTIONS GIVEN IN AYODHYA DISPUTE PENDING SINCE 1948 IN THE COURTS OF LAW DID NOT GIVE ANY FINAL DECISION TILL TODAY.

    THE PROACTIVE SUPREME COURT, FINDING FAULT WITH THE EXECUTIVE AND LEGISLATIVE IN THE COUNTRY FOR DELAYS, IS NOT BOUND BY ANY TIME BOUND DECISION IN DISPOSAL OF CASES. THE PEOPLE HAVE LOST FAITH AND SEEKING JUSTICE THROUGH COURT IS THE LAST RESORT OF LAW ABIDING PEOPLE, SELDOM CHOSEN BY THE CITIZENS!
