Thu, 07/19/2012 - 16:02 -- admin

When a judge refused to accept a blind man attesting a will as a witness in a case he was pleading, SK Rungta argued that the law didn't disqualify a blind person from being a witness. Had that been the case, a blind person couldn't have practised law, as a lawyer has to identify the clients on accepting the brief, he said.

Rungta got his point across. That was eight years ago.

Last week, the Delhi high court judges voted to designate the 57-year-old blind advocate a 'senior' - a first for the country.
