On July 7 Supreme Court had rejected his apology in the perjury case and had asked him to be present in court personally the very next day.

The apex court had also asked Thakur to be present on July 14 to tender the apology, indicating that it was willing to accept the apology and close the contempt proceedings against Thakur.

Senior advocate PS Patwalia, appearing for Thakur had said that though his client was willing to tender an unconditional apology, he had a very good case on merit through which it can be proved that he did no wrong.

Thakur had on March 6 tendered an "unconditional and unqualified apology" before the apex court, saying he had never intended to file any false information before the apex court.
