It is not a regular cross-examination at the registrar’s court at the Delhi High Court when scores of young lawyers flock to catch a glimpse of the proceedings.Eminent jurists Ram Jethmalani and Arun Jaitley took on each other for four hours on Monday as the former had set at least 50 potent questions to be hurled at the Union Minister. The spectacle is set to continue on Tuesday.

The issue relates to a civil defamation suit filed by Union Minister for Finance Arun Jaitley against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and few others.

Kejriwal and others allegedly made defamatory allegations against Jaitley and accused his handling of the Delhi District Cricket Administration or DDCA as “corrupt”. Jaitely had run the DDCA as president for 13 years.

As Twitter and a number of WhatsApp groups with lawyers cracked up on veteran Jethmalani’s questions, those in the court could not miss the composure Jaitley displayed.

The questions were meant to provoke, to attack, but Jaitley barely gave Jethmalani a chance. (Cue to law students on how to keep answers succinct).
