Jurist Jethmalani to retire

DNDEL9272 | 9/10/2017 | Author : DNA Correspondent | WC :75 | India



Legal luminary Ram Jethmalani on Saturday announced his retirement from the profession, ending a career studded with cases that evoked both shock and awe. Jethmalani, widely acknowledged as one of India’s finest legal minds, often drew attention for taking on sometimes unsavoury defendants, a practice that earned him the sobriquet of ‘maverick’. LiveLaw.com quoted him as saying that he is retiring because he ‘wants to save India from corrupt politicians’.
