Senior Supreme Court lawyer Rajeev Dhavan to appear in Ayodhya case

Rajeev Dhavan

New Delhi: Senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, who recently gave up court practice in wake of his courtroom spat with Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, has reconsidered his decision on the request of his client to appear in the Supreme Court in the Ram Janamabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute.

Seventy-four-year-old Dhavan had on December 11 called it quits after what he described as a “humiliating end” to the Delhi government-Centre dispute case following heated exchanges between him and the CJI.

Advocate Ejaz Maqbool, who is representing some of the Muslim bodies in the Ayodhya land dispute case, said that they had urged Dhavan to represent them in the matter and the senior counsel has accepted the request.

He said that before Dhavan announced that he had given up court practice, the senior lawyer was appearing for them in the Ayodhya dispute case.

Dhavan had earlier addressed a letter to the CJI saying he had decided to give up court practice.

“After the humiliating end to the Delhi case, I have decided to give up court practice. You are entitled to take back the senior gown conferred on me, though I would like to keep it for memory and the services rendered,” he had said in his letter.

On December 6, just before the conclusion of the hearing in the case, heated exchanges were witnessed between the Chief Justice and Dhavan.
