Bar Council of India (BCI) slams complainant who wrote letter against SC Judge DY Chandrachud
The complainant RK Pathan alleged that in the complaint copy that Justice DY Chandrachud was disqualified to hear any case where his son is representing any of the parties
NEW DELHI: Bar Council of India (BCI) on Saturday slammed a complainant who recently wrote a letter to the President of India against Justice DY Chandrachud alleging that he had passed an order to help his lawyer son's client.
The complainant RK Pathan, claiming to be the President of the Supreme Court and High Court Litigants Association of India, alleged that in the complaint copy that Justice DY Chandrachud was disqualified to hear any case where his son is representing any of the parties, but then also he heard the matter and passed the order beneficial to his son's client.
The Bar Council of India press communication stated that it has thoroughly examined the contents of this 165-pages long letter and it finds that it is nothing but a scurrilous and malicious attempt to interfere with the functioning of the Judiciary and the administration of justice. The contents of the complaint itself expose the frivolity of the allegations and the malicious purpose and intent behind them. The press statement further states that the Bar Council of India has strongly deprecated the modus of some people with vested interests for their unsuccessful attempt "to tarnish the image of our Supreme court and/or its Judges. Such a growing tendency is really a matter of serious concern for the country and it has to be checked anyhow". ANI
