High Court adjourns plea on appointment of judges

Supreme Court disposes petition on framing of MoP for higher judiciary appointments

As CJI told the petitioner that its dismissed as these are not matters to be decided on the judicially side, Mr. Luthra said he had a right to be heard before the matter was dismissed.

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a petition seeking probe into a medical admission scam allegedly involving a former judge of the Orissa High Court.

Bhushan dared the bench to issue a contempt notice to him and said the hearing can not be conducted in this manner without allowing him to speak. According to it, the No. 2 judge can not order the formation of a constitution bench.

The activist advocate was also rebuked by Justice Arun Mishra, who observed that FIR can not be lodged against sitting judicial officer of lower courts, judges of the higher judiciary, the Vice President of India or the President of India because they have immunity. He also said that the allegations made by some lawyers against the Chief Justice should be treated as contempt of court.

This has led to speculation on the differences between the Chief Justice and the second senior-most judge. The five-judge bench which upturned Chief Justice Chelmeswar's order comprised of CJI Dipak Misra, Justices RK Agrawal, Arun Mishra, Amitava Roy and AM Khanwilkar.

A proposal to set up a panel to look into the salary hike of judges of lower courts is likely to come up before the Union Cabinet on Friday, a senior functionary said.

"It can not be presumed if he (Bhushan) says that it (FIR) is against any judge of any court".

It overturned an order passed yesterday by a two-judge bench to constitute a five-judge bench to hear a matter of alleged bribes taken in the name of judges and said that neither a two-judge, nor a three-judge bench can direct the CJI to constitute a specific bench.

While the train had an inaugural run on Thursday, the commercial service will begin November 16. Immigration and customs facilities were also inaugurated at Kolkata station.

"Any order passed contrary to this order (by the constitution bench) should not hold the field and shall be treated to be annulled", the CJI said in hard-hitting remarks while refusing the request of a lawyer to bar the media from reporting the case, saying he believed in "freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom of press".

Referring to another prayer by petitioner-in-person R.P. Luthra, the bench on Wednesday said: "Having considered the entire facts and circumstances of the case and further taking note of the relief clause, we have no iota of doubt that the petitioner had sought primarily for mitigation of an individual grievance which the two-Judge bench had correctly declined to entertain".

Bhushan left the court in a huff midway during the hearing, alleging that he was not being allowed to speak while the court has heard "all and sundry". The two were accused of assuring the college representative of getting favourable orders from the top court.

In yet another development, seven Congress MLAs today filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court regarding the matter of OI. The CBI said Rs 2 crores was recovered during the raids. Given the seriousness of the matter, the judge made a decision to take up the petition in the afternoon.

The court also issued notice to Centre and the CBI on the plea seeking setting up of SIT headed by ex-SC judge under its monitoring.

"These matters can not be heard on the judicial side", Misra said, dismissing a petition on which the order was passed. Dave, arguing in the court asked if CBI had filed a false case to tarnish the image of the judiciary.

CJAR's petition claims that the government could use the investigations to undermine the independence of the judiciary.
