SC dis­misses plea for SIT probe in judges bribery case

Mid Day - - NATION -

The Supreme Court yes­ter­day dis­missed a pe­ti­tion seek­ing a SIT probe into an al­leged case of bribery in the name of judges, say­ing such a plea has raised un­nec­es­sary doubts over the in­tegrity of judges.

The apex court re­jected the pe­ti­tion filed by lawyer Kamini Jaiswal, mak­ing it clear that the CBI’s FIR was not against any judge and nei­ther was it pos­si­ble to lodge such a com­plaint against a judge.

How­ever, it did not is­sue a con­tempt no­tice against Jaiswal.

A bench of Jus­tices R K Agrawal, Arun Mishra and A M Khan­wilkar also dep­re­cated at­tempts made for re­cusal of one of the judges in the mat­ter say­ing it was not proper and tan­ta­mounted to “fo­rum shop­ping.”
