A judge was forced to confiscate his own mobile phone after it rang during a hearing.
Justice BA Khan's phone started ringing during a case at Delhi High Court and one of the laywers challenged him, reminding him of the tough rules on the use of mobiles in court.
The red-faced judge agreed to hand the phone over to courtroom officials, much to the amusement of the public gallery.
Not content with confiscation, Justice Khan threatened to report himself to the High Court Bar Committee - something he usually does when lawyers' phones go off during cases.
Judges throughout the world have threatened journalists and lawyers with contempt of court for having their mobiles in court, but this is believed to be the first case where equipment has been seized.
