A visibly unhappy Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, in a brief order, said “for reasons not to be recorded, we are not inclined to hear the matter today” after a news portal carried extracts of Verma’s response. Gogoi also said one of the two judges on the bench Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice K.M. Joseph “will be away from tonight”.

At the outset, the Chief Justice, disallowing the customary mentioning, asked senior counsel Fali Nariman to look at a report which was given to him. “It is only for you (Nariman) to read yourself it is not for counsel for Alok Verma” (Nariman is appearing for Verma), Gogoi told the senior counsel.

Addressing him as the “most respected senior member of the institution”, Gogoi added: “If you wish to respond to this, we will adjourn the hearing from an hour”. However, Nariman expressing his ignorance over the publication, said: “I was also disturbed on seeing it. I will request the court to summon the person who carried this report.”
