JUSTICE Rohinton Nariman today came down heavily against a petitioner in a public interest litigation seeking sending Indian Muslims to Pakistan.
“Do you seriously want to argue this? We will hear you, but we will pass strictures against you,” a visibly irked Justice Nariman said to the petitioner.

Gauging the displeasure of the two judge bench, the petitioner chose to reply in the negative.
Justices Nariman and Vineet Saran then proceeded to dismiss the petition.
The Petition was filed by one Sangat Singh Chauhan from Uttarakhand through Advocate on Record (AoR) C. L. Sahu, in the Supreme Court on July 23, 2018. On the very next day on July 24, 2018, the Supreme Court registry notified to the petitioner about eight defects in the petition. The petitioner cured the defects after five months on January 16, 2019.

On March 6, 2019, the PIL was listed in chamber of Justice Hemant Gupta with an application for condonation of delay in re-filing of the petition. The chamber judge allowed the application.
Thereafter, petition was processed by the registry for listing before the Court and was placed in the court presided over by Justice Rohinton Nariman.
