As batch of petitions challenging constitutional validity of ‘Triple Talaq', ‘Nikah Halala’ and polygamy issues, the Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed former union minister Salman Khurshid to assist as an amicus curiae in all the cases.
A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justices D Y Chandrachud and S K Kaul also gave their consent to Khurshid, who is a senior lawyer, to file his written submissions in the case.
"We will take it on record. It's not an issue," the bench said when the Congress leader said that the time for filing written submission in the matter has already expired and he intended to file certain pleadings in the case.
