After rebellious weekend, four Supreme Court judges resume work
New Delhi, Jan 15 (IBNS): After turning rebels against the Chief Justice of India (CJI) in the last weekend, four senior judges of the Supreme Court resumed their work on Monday, media reports said.
In an unprecedented press meet, four senior most judges of the SC, Justices Jasti Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph, revolted against CJI Dipak Misra on Friday alleging the latter had assigned cases of far reaching consequences to preferred judges.
Questions are raised against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah's acquittal in Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case.
The judges said they had approached Justice Misra with a complaint letter but failed to convince him.
When asked whether they propose an impeachment of the CJI or not, the judges said: "It is the nation which will decide."
One of the four senior judges of the SC, Justice Jasti Chelameswar, said: "Democracy cannot survive without free judiciary."
"We had no option left but to address the media. This is a historical event." he added.
CJI Misra said the disputes will soon be resolved, report said.
