SC MOVED TO PRODUCE RAGHUPATI’S LETTER
It refers to plea filed at Supreme Court by a Chennai-based lawyer Elephant Rajendran requesting for production of correspondence between former Chief Justice of India KG Balakrishnan, sitting Supreme Court Judge (then Chief Justice of Madras High Court) HR Gokhle and the then Madras High Court judge R Raghupati. It becomes necessary too because of contrast version on the issue between Justice HR Gokhle and Justice KG Balakrishnan
But the issue is already before Supreme Court when there exists a stay-order by the Apex Court on a verdict by Central Information Commission directing Supreme Court registry to provide copies of the said correspondence under RTI Act. Since the Division Bench of Supreme Court having heard the matter has directed Supreme Court registry to approach for a Constitution Bench to decide the issue, Constitution Bench should be constituted at the earliest to fast-track decide the issue which has put even a former Chief Justice of India in a dock.
Also Chief Justice of India should make it compulsory for all in judicial system to compulsorily mention complete details about approaches and influences including names of those approaching in court-proceedings. Simply exhibition of honesty by recusing from the case in case of approach is meaningless till the approaching ones are exposed and punished accordingly.
