Chelameswar Calls Press Conference
Justice Jasti Chelameswar, the second senior most judge of the Supreme Court, has called a press conference at his house at noon today. The reason for the meeting has not been announced.
It is being reported that the benches in Courtrooms 2 and 4 of the Supreme Court have risen. Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul sits on the bench in Courtroom 2 with Justice Chelameswar. Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta form the bench in Courtroom 4.
The meeting comes on a day when the SC heard a petition for a special investigation into the death of Judge Loya in 2014, who passed away while hearing the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case.
An investigation by The Caravan magazine in December 2017 had raised concerns regarding the circumstances of Judge Loya's death.
Justice Chelameswar had referred the matters in the medical bribery cases – filed last year by the Campaign for Judicial Accountability and Reforms and senior advocate Kamini Jaiswal – to a Constitution Bench. However, the case saw Chief Justice Dipak Misra exercising his powers as master of the roster to reverse the decision.
