“It is the fervent duty of this Court as the apex Court of the country to ensure that the administration of justice system in this country is primarily free from all forms of
intimidations and undue influences. This is to enable the smooth functioning of that system. Maintaining this standard is essential for the well-being of the people of the
country who would ultimately benefit from a trouble-free system of administration of justice in the country. We cannot wait passively until just one person, in this case the
Respondent who is an Attorney at Law destroys everything in the system which is meant for the rest of the citizens. We have to step in, to stop that devastation.” says the Supreme Court judgement in convicting Ajith Prasanna for contempt of court.
