New Delhi: Supreme Court judge Justice R Banumathi on Friday (February 14) fainted in the courtroom while dictating the order on the Centre' plea seeking separate hanging of the four death row convicts in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case.
Justice Banumathi was immediately taken into the chamber by other judges on the dais and the court staff after she fainted during the hearing in the 2012 Delhi gang-rape case. The bench adjourned the case saying the order will be released later.
Justice A S Bopanna said that the order in the matter will be passed in-chamber. Justice Ashok Bhushan was also part of the three-judge bench hearing the matter.
