AG, Bar Council chief claim SC crisis has been 'resolved'

Reading list Six articles on the controversy surrounding Aadhaar

Some of the most significant cases that had considerable impact on the Indian democracy were the Sahara Birla bribery case, Medical Council of India scam and more recently the mysterious death of Judge BH Loya. The corruption in the supreme court judges was the talk of the town, where everyone could not believe it.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Venugopal told NDTV: "Now everything has been settled". By questioning the competence of judges on the basis of seniority, public faith in the institution of the Supreme Court has been dented. It seems that everything is settled.

Attorney General KK Venugopal has also claimed the criris in the apex court has been resolved.

This refers to the report, "Supreme judicial crisis grips India" (January 13).

However, the composition of the constitution bench indicated that the matter is far from over. However, sources close to the judges said that till late Sunday evening, there had been no overture in this regard on Justice Misra's part.

The CJI and two other judges on the bench - A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud - did not respond to his plea.

The issue emerging from the public debate is about which judge or bench is competent to hear the Loya case.

Another contentious matter relates to the challenge to the validity of a penal law on adultery, which only punishes a married man for having an extra-marital sexual relationship with a woman married to someone else.

The Bar Council of India chairman Manan Mishra, has said that the conflict between the four judges and the court have now been resolved properly, "We did not want any political party to take advantage of the situation", he said.

With recent development in the matter, it would be interesting to see why and how things settle between the top judges of the supreme court, who have opened fire against their own colleague.

Talking about the complaint raised by justices Jasti Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph, Mishra said the memorandum of procedure must be finalised at the earliest.

Justice Arun Mishra is said to have broken down for being "unfairly" targeted by the four judges raising questions about his "competence" and "integrity".
