It was on 3.3.2009 that Ms. Patkar couldn't attend a case at Patiala High Court, New Delhi due to back pain and doctors advising against long distance travel, while she attended villager's dialogue with the Collector, Nandurbar. There was no contradiction or perjury in the two acts, yet the petition challenged the certificate. Justice Bharhoke, considering the petition as out rightly frivolous, rejected even admission of the case.
