'There is a sense of...': CJI Chandrachud on why judiciary is flooded with bail matters

Justice Chandrachud succeeded Chief Justice UU Lalit who retired on November 9.

Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud on Saturday said Judges at the grassroots are reluctant to grant bail due to the sense of fear of being targeted for granting bail in
heinous cases.

At a felicitation event organised by the Bar Council of India, CJI Chandrachud said,"Higher judiciary is flooded with bail applications due to reluctance at grassroots to grant bail. Judges at the grassroots are reluctant to grant bail not because they do not understand crime, but there is sense of fear of being targeted for granting bail in heinous cases."

Union Law minister Kiren Rijiju was also present at the occasion. He raised concerns over several lawyers meeting CJI regarding transfers.

The senior-most judge of the Supreme Court of India Justice DY Chandrachud on November 9 became the 50th head of the Judiciary of the country. He will have a tenure till November 10, 2024.

Justice Chandrachud succeeded Chief Justice UU Lalit who retired on November 9.
