  • SC judges issue: Bar Association to meet today

Four of its senior-most judges took on the Chief Justice of India in a public platform over the handling of court procedures - a display of dissent unheard of in the Indian judiciary.

In an unprecedented move, Justices Kurian Joseph, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and J Chelameswar held a press conference on Friday where they questioned "selective" case allocation and certain judicial orders.

After four senior Supreme Court judges came out and spoke about the issues concerning the highest court in the country, the Bar Council of India (BCI) today said that it has unanimously made a decision to form a 7-member delegation of the Council who will meet the judges.

Loya, who was hearing the Sohrabuddin fake shootout case, should be entrusted to the senior-most judges of the Supreme Court who should ensure a thorough and impartial investigation of the case by an independent SIT. Amongst those present were Secretary of HCBA Shashank Shekhar, Joint Secretary Amit Jain, Treasurer Anita Kaithwas, former Secretary Manish Tiwari.

Justice Chelameswar said 'we owe a responsibility to the institution and the nation.

Ranjan Gogoi is going to become the Chief Justice of India in October 2018, succeeding Justice Dipak Misra, as the senior most judge of the Court. Singh said that the issues raised by the judges are of grave concern and must be resolved immediately by SC bar association. Justice Chelameswar accused Justice Misra of not taking any " remedial measures" on some of the issues which affected the functioning ofthe SC that they had raised.

Some Supreme Court lawyers praised the justices' action.

Rahul Gandhi said the issues pointed out by the four judges of the Supreme Court were extremely important and should be jointly discussed by the top court.

Mishra said a seven-member delegation led by him will tomorrow meet rest of the apex court judges to know their views about the situation and later they would consult with the four senior judges who held the presser.

As far as Friday's event is concerned, I do not think the development had or could do any damage to the judicial institution.
