SC turns down plea against raising of Justice JS Khehar as CJI


The Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain a petition filed by a group of lawyers against elevation of Justice J S Khehar as Chief Justice of India, saying that the plea has become infructuous as the President of India has already cleared his appointment as head of the judiciary and notification has been issued.
There is nothing left in this petition as the President of India has already issued the notification appointing Justice Khehar as the next CJI,”a bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan and L Nageswara Rao said. The plea against Justice Khehar’s elevation was filed by National Lawyers’ Campaign for Judicial Transparency and Reforms.
