"Things Not in Order",says 4 Supreme Court Judges at Press Conference

 New Delhi,Jan 12(The Fast Mail):-For the first time in the history of Supreme Court four senior judges today  went public with complaints against the Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra.

The "rebel" judges - the four most-senior at the top court after the Chief Justice - said that "things are not in order".

They described in the press meet that an independent judiciary is essential for a functioning democracy.

Replying to queries from media about the impeachment of the chief justice of Supreme Court,these judges replied whether the Chief Justice of India should be impeached or not ,"Let the nation decide."

The judges alleged that unless this institution is preserved and it maintains its equanimity, democracy will not survive in this country," Justice J Chelameswar said at his. He is the second most-senior judge of the Supreme Court.

The judges alleged that cases being allocated without transparency. They made available a letter written by them to the Chief Justice two months ago, alleging "selective assignment of cases to preferred judges".
They also alleged that "sensitive cases were being allotted to junior judges".

 Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan Lokur and Kurien Joseph said despite their repeated  alerts to the Chief Justice to their concerns - including a meeting with him this morning - had failed to make any progress on this.They were forced to voice their complaints publicly at a press conference.

When asked if their complaints include the case of the death of a CBI judge, BH Loya, "yes" said Justice Gogoi. He however declined to elaborate.

Judge Loya was hearing a case that accused BJP president Amit Shah of murder when he died in Nagpur in December 2014.

His family has alleged that his death was unnatural and came after he was offered 100 crores as a bribe to rule in favour of the BJP leader. Medical records show Judge Loya died of a cardiac arrest. Within weeks of his death, Amit Shah was acquitted.
