Ujjwal Nikam: Profile, Son, Fees and Wife



In the history of India’s legal system, the name of Ujjwal Nikam will always be written in golden words. He is not just a lawyer, a public prosecutor, but he is a man with lion heart. He has the acumen and necessary qualities to become the top most lawyer of India, but the lion in him always asked him to serve the nation.


Ujjwal Nikam is known for taking very tough cases like 1993 Blasts of Mumbai, Gulshan Kumar Murder Case, 2008 Mumbai Attacks and Pramod Mahajan murder case, among others. And, in all cases, he showed how a lawyer can serve the nation. He brought the truth and helped India to make a positive image in the International arena.





Profile of Ujjwal Nikam


Ujjwal basically belongs to Jalgaon, Maharashtra. His father Deoraoji Nikam was a well-known lawyer who later became a judge. People of Jalgaon still remember the honesty and integrity of Deoraoji, who inculcated values of standing against all ills to Ujjwal.


Ujjwal was first not inclined to become a lawyer. He did B.Sc. However, when he saw how his father is serving poor in getting justice, he decided to do the same. He got law degree from Jalgaon and became a District Government Public Prosecutor of his home district. However, destiny had written something else for him.


It was in 1993 when the Government of Maharashtra appointed him as the special public prosecutor in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. At that time, he was in Jalgaon. All senior public prosecutors and well-known lawyers of Maharashtra had refused the offer. They were fearing threat to their lives for obvious reasons. And, then the case was supposed to go for very long period of time. Who is going to sacrifice big fat fees for the sake of the nation? The answer was Ujjwal Nikam.


Ujjwal did wonder in that case and brought all culprits to the justice. The case went on for quite long time, but it also shows the power of India and belief of the Indian judiciary on the path shown by the Constitution of India.


Wife of Ujjwal Nikam is a homemaker.




Fees of Ujjwal Nikam


There is no denying that Ujjwal Nikam is one of the most known and respected criminal lawyer of the country. But, you will be surprised to know his fees. He charged only Rs. 10, 000 for one day of hearing. At the same time, you should know that criminal lawyers of his statures are charging more than Rs. 5 lakhs for one hearing.
He is doing everything for the sake of India, to make the country’s image vibrant and justified in the International arena.




Son of Ujjwal Nikam


The name of the son of Ujjwal Nikam is Aniket Ujjwal Nikam. He is also a lawyer. His appointment as the legal advisor to the Civic body created flutter in the politics of Maharashtra. He is considered close to the NCP. In fact, he fought a case filed by the BJP against the irrigation scandal done under the nose of senior NCP leader and the former irrigation minister of Maharashtra, Mr. Ajit Pawar.


As a matter of fact, both Ujjwal and his son are apolitical. They have never shown any inclination to become close to any political parties.




Ujjwal and Ishrat Jahan Case


While asking questions from David Headley on 26/11, Ujjwal did a great service to the mother India by bringing the reality of Ishrat Jahan. Ujjwal goaded him to tell about the women wing of the LeT and Headly replied by admitting that Ishrat Jahan was a suicide bomber of the terrorist organization. This should give some sort of shame to those political parties who are doing great disservice to the nation by promoting antinational and terrorists like Ishrat Jahan.
