Justice Banumathi soon regained consciousness and was taken to chamber by other judges on dias and Supreme Court staff.
She has been taken on wheel chair for medical treatment.
Justice A S Bopanna, while rising, said that the order in the matter will be passed in-chamber.
Earlier, the bench said it is deferring the hearing till 2 pm,Friday in wake of a trial court asking the District Legal Services Authority to provide Gupta's father with a list of empanelled advocates to choose from to represent the convict.
The trial court, which has expressed anguish over the delay in hearing of the applications moved by Nirbhaya's parents and the Delhi government for fresh death warrants, will hear the matter again at 3 pm Thursday.
