The Supreme Court on Friday refused to hear a PIL against allotment of plots to judges of the high courts of Odisha and Gujarat. A bench led by Justice H L Dattu asked petitioner NGO ‘CPIL’ to approach the respective high courts first.
The court’s refusal came even as petitioner’s advocate Prashant Bhushan pointed out that as many as 10 judges of the Odisha High Court had applied for such plots under Chief Minister’s discretionary quota and hence he had reasonable apprehension of bias in the high court.
Bhushan urged the apex court to hear the matter, arguing its refusal would send the message that courts shy away from taking up contentious issues relating to judges.
