Singh, whose comments in the documentary India’s daughter have sparked outrage. According to a report by NDTV, the council met on Friday night and decided to give the two lawyers three weeks’ time to explain themselves else face disciplinary action. Singh and Sharma are the lawyers representing the four men accused of the gang rape in December 2012 which is the focus of the documentary. The film, banned in India, was telecast by the BBC on Wednesday night and Sharma’s and Singh’s remarks in the feature have irked many, including fellow lawyers who asked for the duo’s licenses to be revoked. Sharma alleged though, that the filmmaker used only a small portion of what he’d said. “She took my interview for 10 days, showed only one line,” he told the channel. Singh told the channel that people who were opposing him were “biased”.
