“Justice Chandrachud Has Fallen Off,” Lawyer Said. What Happened Next

In the Supreme Court’s video hearing on Covid today, a technical glitch made for some lighter moments as Justice DY Chandrachud was disconnected for some time.

“I think Justice Chandrachud has fallen off,” remarked a lawyer when the senior judge vanished from the screen.

When Justice Chandrachud reconnected, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta commented that: “An incorrect word was used, like Justice DY Chandrachud had ‘fallen off’.”

Justice Chandrachud quipped: “Arrey woh toh parmatma ke haath me hai (that is in the hands of God).”
