Man throws slippers at HC justice

September 29, 2004 21:06 IST

A man, whose request to be heard was turned down, on Wednesday threw slippers at Chief Justice B C Patel and Justice B D Ahmed of the Delhi high court during proceedings.

Charanjit Singh Siddhu of Delhi's Uttam Nagar locality was immediately taken into custody.

Sidhu was agitated after the bench refused to entertain his application, which was not listed for hearing on Wednesday.

Lawyers, including president of the Delhi High Court Bar Association Amarjit Singh Chandioke, rushed to the court and requested the chief justice to adjourn the proceedings.

But the bench observed, "These are occupational hazards of access to justice.

"We do not know how he entered the court. Somebody must have issued him a pass."
