The SC had said in its statement, “We did not say any such thing (chowkidar chor hai). We make it clear this court had no occasion to record any view or finding or make any observation as allegedly attributed to the court by the respondent (Rahul Gandhi)… No views, observations or findings should be attributed to the court in political address to the media and in public speeches, unless… recorded by the court.”
