Saloni Subha ( Intern Journalist ) The Supreme court on Thursday granted two days to Prashant Bhushan activist lawyer who has been held guilty of his contempt to Court, to reconsider his ‘defiant statement’ refusing to apologize for his contemptuous tweets against the judiciary.

Bhushan told a bench headed by justice Arun Mishra that he would consult his lawyer and he will think regarding the Supreme Court suggestions. Attorney general Kk Venugopal urged the bench, not to award any punishment to Bhushan in Bhushan in the contempt Case saying he has already been convicted.

However, the bench said that it cannot consider the request of Venugopal unless Bhushan reconsiders his stand of not apologizing for his tweets. The tone, tenor, and content of Bhushan statement make it worse; is it defence or aggravation, the court told Venugopal. The court can be very lenient if there is a realisation of mistake and posted the matter for further hearing on 24 August.
