Supreme court rejects petition seeking enquiry into conduct of Ranjan Gogoi

Date: 23 August 2020 Tags: Judiciary & Judgments
  • The Supreme Court dismissed a petition seeking an in-house inquiry against former Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi over allegations of “misconduct”.
  • Gogoi demitted office in November 2019 and was recently nominated by the President to become a member of the Rajya Sabha.
  • Arun Ramchandra Hublikar, a resident of Pune, had filed the petition against Gogoi in 2018. Hublikar demanded that a three-judge committee should be constituted under the in-house procedure for remedial action against judges of the higher judiciary whose conduct does not follow the prescribed Restatement of Judicial Values adopted by the Supreme Court in 1999.
