A bench comprising Chief Justice N V Ramana and Justices Hima Kohli and C T Ravikumar also imposed a cost of Rs 25,000 on “busy body” litigant P A Josseph who wanted freezing of the election symbol till the resolution of the ongoing factional fight inside AIADMK between Edappadi K Palaniswami and O Panneerselvam groups.

The top court was hearing an appeal of Josseph against the dismissal of his plea by the Madras High Court.

"How much cost do we have to impose on you? They (the high court) have imposed Rs 25,000. We will impose another Rs 25,000. You are a busy body. You have no work. Dismissed,” the CJI said.
