Nirbhaya Case

In the course of his legal journey, he shared a deeply personal connection to the Nirbhaya case, as one of the victim’s wives approached his mother seeking justice. Moved by their plea, Ajay’s mother urged him to fight for the victim’s family and help them find closure and justice. On one occasion, he commented that Nirbhaya’s parents were irresponsible, which garnered significant criticism from the public and media. Later, after a court hearing, he reportedly told Nirbhaya’s mother, Asha Devi, that he would not allow the killers to be hanged, further fueling public scrutiny and debate surrounding his remarks and actions during the legal proceedings.
