New Delhi: The Delhi Supreme Court has recognized a Keralite attorney for presenting arguments through video conferencing with an oxygen mask in the hospital bed.
Adv Subhash Chandran was the lawyer praised for his dedication and sincerity by Judge Pratibha M Singh of the Delhi Supreme Court. Subhash is from Kuttippuram in Malappuram and appeared on a case related to the repatriation of the body of a person who died in Saudi Arabia.
Subhash has difficulty breathing and has been hospitalized in Baddi, Himachal Pradesh since April 27. Subhash, a former journalist, decided to show up for the case at a video conference like the one that was performed on Wednesday.
Sanjeev Kumar, 51, from Himachal Pradesh died of a heart attack in Saudi Arabia on January 24th. His wife then requested the expatriation of the body. On February 18, the family was informed that the body was buried.
The death certificate stated that the person was a Muslim. So the woman turned to the court and asked for the body to be returned to be cremated according to Hindu rituals. When the case was examined on Wednesday, the central government notified the Supreme Court that the body was brought home at 3 a.m. that day.
Following this, the Supreme Court praised the Foreign Ministry’s efforts and thanked the Saudi Arabian authorities. The court also recognized Adv Subhash Chandran for presenting arguments from the hospital bed before the case was closed.
