Faith in judiciary shaken, I forgive you: Kumar to judge

The judge, however, reacted modestly to Kumar's remarks. "I am telling you on intellectual basis I stand nowhere in front of you. My judgment may be wrong and you can challenge it in the Supreme Court or in the Delhi High Court. It will be judged by the high court and they will see it on merits," the judge said, reported PTI.

Kumar, while saying he was a fighter and can also go up to the extent of immolating himself, told the judge: "On January 22 while giving me the punishment, please consider that you are not only a judge but also a husband and a father, just like me."

His wife, who along with him argued in the court, said that "deterrent punishment should not be given to whistle blowers otherwise no one will come forward to expose any crime".
