NEW DELHI: On December 6, the Indian Supreme Court rejected a petition calling for an investigation into former Chief Justice of India and MP Ranjan Gogoi.
According to sources, the petitioner claimed that a bench chaired by the then-CJI Ranjan Gogoi repeatedly and "abruptly" dismissed his case.
A bench presided over by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha rejected the party in person's argument and instructed the petitioner to file a curative petition.
"You have lost in front of the labour court. You claimed the High Court had been incorrectly overruled. After the review petition was dismissed, you filed a PIL. You may be so enraged at times. You need to submit a curative petition right now. The only option is that. One of our attorneys has been assigned to represent you in court. We have made thorough notes. submit a remedy petition, "According to DY Chandrachud, the petitioner.
The court had to reject the PIL because the petitioner, in an interesting disagreement with the CJi, claimed he did not believe in curative petitions.
It should be noted that students from Assam received special scholarships from the National Law University and Judicial Academy in Guwahati earlier in November thanks to an initiative by former Chief Justice of India and Rajya Sabha member Ranjan Gogoi.
The scholarship checks are a component of an attempt to award scholarships to deserving students majoring in law using money from Justice Ranjan Gogoi's salary and allowances as a Rajya Sabha member.
Justice Ranjan Gogoi, who spoke at the occasion, predicted that students, particularly those majoring in law, would benefit greatly from the funding.
According to earlier reports, Ranjan Gogoi, a former chief justice of India, has been nominated to serve in the Upper House's Council of States. On March 16, 2020, the President of India announced his nomination in a notice that was published in the Indian Official Gazette. Following his appointment in October 2018, he served as India's 46th Chief Justice. As of November 17, 2019, he retired.
