Subsequently, Supreme Court offered security to Dhavan
After hearing Dhavan's side, the five-judge bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and SA Nazeer took note of submission and condemned the incident.
The court also offered protection to Dhavan, which the advocate refused stating that assurance was enough.
Earlier, on September 3, the apex court had issued a notice to two individuals for allegedly threatening Dhavan.
"This is something that should not be happening. We are in the midst of an argument. Counsel for both sides must be free to make their submissions free from all influences, however subtle they might be," the bench said.
