Andhra Pradesh High Court orders CBI probe into defamatory social media posts on judgments

Hyderabad/IBNS: Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday ordered a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into defamatory social media posts on its judgments.

The court has issued notice to 49 leaders and activists of the state's ruling YSR Congress Party.

This comes after Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy complained to the Chief Justice of India in a letter alleging that the Chief Justice of Andhra Pradesh High Court and four other judges were acting against his elected government.

The High Court on Monday ruled said the central probe agency should file cases against all those who slandered judges.

The ruling said that the judgments of the High Court were "misrepresented" in the social media posts.

The AP High Court also asked the state government to cooperate with the CBI.

YS Jaganmohan Reddy had also complained to Chief Justice of India S.A. Bobde against a senior judge of the Supreme Court, who is seen as the "CJI-in-waiting".

The Chief Minister had levelled some serious allegations against the Supreme Court judge.

He had claimed that the judge was acting on behalf of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and that he was very close to opposition leader and former chief minister Chandrababu Naidu.
