Lawyer-activist Prashant Bhushan, who has refused to apologise for his tweets on Chief Justice of India SA Bobde and the Supreme Court, should be pardoned with a warning, the government's top lawyer said today, assisting the top court. After a gripping back-and-forth in the courtroom and an emotional statement by outgoing judge Arun Mishra, the court reserved its judgment. "If you are hurting someone, then what is wrong in apologizing," Justice Arun Mishra said. "For how long the system will suffer all this? I am retiring in a few days. Will it be okay if you or others start attacking me? You should apply balm if you have caused hurt."
