Known Justice Katju for 16 years: AG recuses from contempt plea nod

Mar 30, 2021 22:13 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Attorney General K.K. Venugopal has recused himself from granting consent to initiate contempt of court proceedings against former Supreme Court judge, Justice Markandey Katju.

Venugopal asked the petitioner, Supreme Court lawyer Alakh Alok Srivastava, to place the request before Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, as per the Contempt of Courts Act.

Srivastava had written a letter to Venugopal on March 1, alleging Justice Katju had made "extremely contemptuous" remarks against the Indian judiciary in the Nirav Modi extradition case, and also cited observation made by the UK court against him in the matter.
