While Kapil Sibal reportedly did not get the reference, Gogoi was referring to recent research by advocate KV Dhananjay and others, that revealed that only 7 per cent of cases the Supreme Court heard had a constitutional dimension to them, as reported by Legally India earlier this month.

SC justices P Sathasivam and Ranjan Gogoi are currently examining whether life-term convicts should undergo simple or rigorous imprisonment.

A man convicted for murdering his wife, whom he suspected of adultery, was sentenced to the life-term by a Maharashtra sessions court and the sentence was reaffirmed by Bombay high court.

In his appeal through the Supreme Court Legal Services Centre, senior counsel Parmanand Katara argued on his behalf that since the Indian Penal Code (IPC) does not define rigorous imprisonment, the lifer should be subjected to only simple imprisonment entailing simple instead of hard labour during his life term.
