SC rejects plea over Gogoi’s conduct

- Legal Correspond­ent

The Supreme Court dismissed a plea to set up a commission to inquire into the conduct of former Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi as a judge of the apex court, saying he has already demitted office.

Justice Gogoi is presently a Rajya Sabha member.

“This plea has become infructuou­s as he has demitted office... Sorry we cannot entertain this,” a three-judge Bench led by Justice Arun Mishra told the petitioner, Arun Ramchandra Hublikar.

The petitioner claimed before the Bench that he had met the Secretary General of the top court for listing of his plea but it was not listed.

Justice Gogoi headed the Bench, which delivered Ayodhya land dispute before he retired as the CJI on November 17, 2019.
