ANI  Twitter

In an unprecedented move, four seniormost judges of the Supreme Court today called a press conference and said the situation in the top court was "not in order" and many "less than desirable" things have taken place.

In an unprecedented development, four senior Supreme Court Judges called a press conference after halting the court proceedings. Along with her, the five-judge Collegium has also cleared the name of Justice KM Joseph, the Chief Justice of Uttarakhand High Court, for appointment as a judge of Supreme Court.

Four senior judges of India's Supreme Court have lashed out at the workings of the country's top court, directing blame at Chief Justice Dipak Misra.

January 12 (NT): Four judges of the Supreme Court on Friday said that they have released a debt to the nation by issuing an appeal to the nation to save the justice-institution "Supreme Court". The press conference would be about the events in the collegium of the Supreme Court.

Justice Chelameswar added: "All our efforts have failed and we are all convinced that unless this institution is preserved, democracy can't be protected in the country". Unfortunately, we couldn't convince him.

They indicated that a memorandum of procedure (MoP) which had already been finalised in a Supreme Court order 2016 in the AOR Association case before it, and was sent to the government which to date has not commented on it.

When asked whether it (press conference) was a sign of no confidence against the CJI, Justice Chelameswar said, "Don't put words in our mouth". "The thing was done, but in a way, that it raises doubt on the integrity of the institution", said Justice Chelameswar.

Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, heading a four-member larger bench, gave the order while hearing the contempt case against 14 judges who had taken oath under the PCO. "That is what we believe and many more things happened".

One of the senior judges of the SC, Justice Jasti Chelameswar, said: "Democracy can not survive without free judiciary".

In a letter to Chief Justice Mishra that has been made public, the judges said they would not divulge details of their concerns to avoid embarrassing the institution.

The chief justice's role was "not a recognition of any superior authority" over his colleagues, they added. We wanted a particular thing to be done in a particular manner.

Justice Ranjan Gogoi said that the difference with the Chief Justice arose during the assignment of the case regarding the death of Justice Loya.

"It's quite shocking. There must have been compelling reasons for the senior-most judges to have adopted this course of action". The PIL was mentioned for urgent hearing by advocate Anitha Shenoy before a bench headed by CJI Dipak Misra, who agreed to post it for hearing on Friday. The decision, experts say, is a rare recognition of the professional talent and contribution of Ms. Malhotra, a reputed senior advocate practising in the apex court.
