Former external affairs minister Salman Khurshid raised quite a few eyebrows when he entered the SC earlier this week to plead for extension of interim bail for rape accused Tarun Tejpal, former editor-in-chief of Tehelka. The man who lost his deposit from Farrukhabad successfully argued in his clipped Oxford accent, managing extension of bail till June 27. 


Like his high-profile career in government, the gregarious lawyer [Kapil Sibal] landed a high-profile case. He is representing the Birlas in their controversial dispute with the Lodhas. 

Asked about his foray back into the courtroom, Sibal told ET, “it is always good to do different things.” He said that he had other plans for himself too. 

“Writing a book, writing songs, composing music… there are so many things to be done,” he said. 

“I am already in the process of setting up my chamber in the SC. It will be done by the time the SC reopens. I have a legal firm Moily Associates in Bangalore, and now plan to take up cases in SC and for other regulators,” Moily told ET.
