Supreme Court lawyer and former Union Minister, Ram Jethmalani passed away today at God's 'waiting Lounge' who has been suffered from a prolonged illness. Let us tell you an interesting incident - when he showed up at a felicitation ceremony to welcome the newly appointed Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Jethmalani made the formal announcement: "My lord, I am appearing before you for one last time. I am more than 90 now. I have seen it all. I am now just an old man living in God's waiting lounge."
He handled many high-profile cases, including defending Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi's assassins. Superstar lawyer Ram Jethmalani had argued controversial cases and was one of India's highest-paid advocates. He has a unique way of reprising cases and transcribing facts with proofs. He spoke out against corruption and also appeared for a string of high-profile personalities to defend them in corruption cases.
He is Asaram Bapu’s defense in a sexual assault case. He appeared for defense in Ketan Parek case. He also appeared for defense in Harshat Mehta Stock scam case. He had represented Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin encounter case and contested on behalf of Manu Sharma in the Jessica Lal murder case. Jethmalani also represented Kanimozhi, daughter of former Tamil Nadu CM Karunanidhi, in the 2G scam case.
Personally, Jethmalani was an avid badminton player and was known for his flamboyance. He would often talk about love and life, would out-dance and outtalk everyone in a party till some years back.
