New Delhi: connivance against Ranjan Gogoi, The Supreme Court Thursday shut the procedures started to test a “bigger connivance” behind lewd behaviour claims against ex-CJI Ranjan Gogoi and “fixing” of seats at the top court.
A seat headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul said that almost two years have passed and the chance of recovering electronic records is practically nothing. The top court, while shutting the suo motu procedures for the situation, said the in-house test has been finished and the three-part board headed by Justice S A Bobde, the current CJI, has just given the report excusing the previous CJI.
Connivance against Ranjan GogoiThe seat, likewise including judges AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian, said the Justice (retd) A K Patnaik board couldn’t get electronic records like WhatsApp messages to test the connivance and consequently no reason would be served by proceeding with the sou metal case.
The top court alluded to the letter of the Director of Intelligence Bureau that some trick may have resulted because of certain intense choices taken by previous Chief Justice Gogoi like a decision on the planning of the National Register for Citizens (NRC) in Assam. There are solid motivations to accept that some sort of scheme may have been embraced against the then CJI Gogoi, the seat said while citing the report of Justice Patnaik.
It said that considering the command of the request dated April 25, 2019, Justice Patnaik’s report thinks that it can’t actually ask whether the choices of the then CJI on the legal side had set off the trick against Gogoi.
“We are of the view that the suo motu procedures in the current case is appropriately shut and the report be fixed once more”, it said, adding that the veracity of the claims leveled by attorney Utsav Singh Bains couldn’t be checked totally because of the restricted admittance of records and other community-oriented material.
