Profile

Justice Pamidighantam Sri Narasimha was a senior advocate of the Supreme Court. He was appointed as Additional Solicitor General of India in 2014 and resigned from the post in 2018. He was also a member of the National Legal Services Authority (NALSA) which provides free legal services to weaker sections of society.

 

As a senior advocate, Justice Narasimha appeared in the Ayodhya Title Dispute case and argued that belief was a fact that could be proven. He maintained that Hindus had continuously believed that the site in question was Lord Ram’s birthplace even prior to the construction of the Babri Masjid.

 

He was also appointed as amicus curiae for pending disputes relating to cricket administration at the BCCI. This was in the aftermath of the Court approving recommendations made by the R.M. Lodha Committee on reforms to the BCCI.
