Seniors worried by crowded supreme courtrooms' health-hazards

Supreme Court judges KS Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra said they might have to open both doors of their courtroom during proceedings, after senior advocates Shanti Bhushan and Rajiv Dhawan pointed out that courtrooms were so crowded that they were an extreme discomfort to “old lawyers”. [Indian Express]

Bhushan, whose matter was called out by the bench, said:

It seems it is in public interest that all elderly lawyers, especially those above 70-80 years in age, should be crushed to death in the Supreme Court. Some day some old lawyers will die in a stampede in the Supreme Court.

Dhawan who was also present in the same courtroom at that time added:

I am in complete agreement with my learned friend. In fact I have broken my leg in the Supreme Court due to this problem.
