‘Independent Judiciary’ at Stake

Balbir Singh Sooch, Advocate, Ludhiana

The Constitutional Powers of ‘Independent Judiciary’ at Stake-It seems to erode the Constitutional Powers of ‘Independent Judiciary’ in India, the human weakness of greed i.e. of the Judges is being exploited, exposed, deliberately and intentionally, in a planned manner since long and its results could be more disastrous as a set back to establish ‘Rule of Law’ in the country.

New Delhi, September 23 The Supreme Court today asked the CBI to investigate the Ghaziabad Provident Fund (PF) scam in which names of several retired and serving judicial officers and judges cropped up as alleged beneficiaries of illegal diversion of funds from employee PF accounts.

In the chargesheet filed by the Ghaziabad police, however, none of the 34 judges — one from SC, eight from Allahabad HC, one each from Uttarakhand and Calcutta HC and 23 from the subordinate judiciary — is named as accused.

On how the CBI should proceed with interrogation of judges, the bench, comprising Justices Arijit Pasayat, V S Sirpurkar and G S Singhvi, said: “There is no need to deal with that aspect at the present juncture.”

It was the alleged involvement of judges that Ghaziabad SSP and UP Director General of Police cited expressing their difficulty to proceed with the investigation. The bench asked the CBI for a status report within three months.
