[11/19, 17:39] Sekarreporter 1: Appearing for a respondent, Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi sought time to respond, asserting that the activity in question is not online gambling.
[11/19, 17:40] Sekarreporter 1: The Court, however, voiced concern:
“For the ordinary common man, what does it mean when a star or film star appears. They will try to follow. Virat Kohli and Saurav Ganguly have so many followers. Fans and fans.”
