Crucial Hearing Today In Supreme Court On Bribes Allegedly Paid To Judges

Medical colleges bribery case: Country is 'doubting credibility' of justice system, says SC judge

When Prashant Bhushan took on CJI stormed out of Supreme Court

What he sought was "justice" in the instant case as Article 142 says: "The Supreme Court in the exercise of its jurisdiction may pass such decree or make such order as is necessary for doing complete justice in any cause or matter pending before it".

The petition was seen to have divided members of the top court last week, when a constitutional bench passed a ruling saying only the chief justice was authorised to assign cases - overturning a fellow judge's order that would have sent the petition to a 5-judge bench.

Critics have said that this group did not include the most senior Supreme Court judges.

Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Tamil Nadu, said the July 11 order was clear, although a clarification was needed. The Chief Justice accused Mr Bhushan of "wild allegations"; he also refused to ban the press from reporting on the case of alleged judicial corruption.

Addl Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told court that the CBI is capable of independent probe into the scam and all attempts to scandalise judiciary should be rejected.

Jaiswal's petition was mentioned on November 9 before a two-judge bench headed by Justice Chelameswar for urgent hearing. The bench repeatedly warned Prashant Bhushan and other arguing counsel for committing gross contempt of court by making scurrilous allegations against CJI without a shred of evidence.

In an oral observation on Monday in the Supreme Court, Justice Arun Mishra had called the allegations levelled against the CJI by Mr. Bhushan as "scurrilous and per se contemptuous".

The bench headed by Justice Kurien Joseph has requested Chief Justice of India to constitute a constitutional bench.

Quddusi, who had also served as a judge in the Chhattisgarh High Court, was arrested along with Lucknow-based Prasad Institute of Medical Sciences' chairman BP Yadav, his son Palash Yadav and three others, for allegedly trying to settle a matter relating to a medical college barred from admitting new students.
