Advocate Prashant Bhushan on Monday deposited the Re 1 fine imposed on him by the Supreme Court.

Speaking to the media after depositing the fine Bhushan said that depositing the fine doesn’t mean that he is accepting the apex court’s judgement.

He informed the media he is going to file a review petition against the top court’s judgement later on the day.

He had filed a fresh petition on Saturday, seeking the right of appeal against the original criminal contempt cases.

Bhushan has demanded that his appeal should be heard by a larger and different bench of the Supreme Court.

It may be mentioned here that the Supreme Court recently held Bhushan guilty of criminal contempt for his tweets criticising the Supreme Court and Chief Justice of India SA Bobde.

The court had on August 31 imposed a token fine of Re 1 as a punishment.
