Calcutta High Court Judge Seeks Apex Court’s Intervention After Division Bench Stays Incomparable Recent Orders

 

An incomparable move, Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay of the Calcutta High Court has written to Chief Justice of India seeking his intervention in response to the division bench of the High Court’s decision to stay some of his recent orders.

 

 

 

 

 

In light of this, Justice Gangopadhyay has sought the CJI’s intervention and also issued an administrative order in which he questions how the division bench stayed the CBI probe order in the last four cases.

On 29th March, 2022 (Tuesday), Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay directed that the documents from the four CBI probe cases he filed in the last couple of recruitment cases, as well as the stay order granted by Justice Harish Tandon’s division bench in those cases, be forwarded to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and the Chief Justice of the High Court.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“My hands are being tied again and again,” the Calcutta High Court judge said, adding, “I appeal to the Chief Justice of the Calcutta High Court and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to look into the matter and investigate the ongoing corruption.”

Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay claims that “Let the country know what’s going on with the illegal labour. Allow the entire situation to be judged.” At the same time, Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay stated in a written administrative directive that a lawyer had come to him on Tuesday to speak on behalf of an influential politician in all of these cases. He folded his hands and begged him to forgive him.

In his administrative order, Gangopadhyay mentioned that during a recent virtual hearing, an advocate is on record saying "we have spoken, stay will be done". He has sent a recording of the virtual hearing to the Supreme Court.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Justice Gangopadhyay stated in his order, "My observation made in the order dated 25.03.2022 has been declared by the said appeal bench as tentative. How this declaration was made and why is not known. There is no reason. Thus, this court's observation has been diluted.”

 

According to Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay, “I handed him a cup of coffee and told him he could go. If the Chief Justice wants to know who that person is, I will tell him.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Justice Harish Tandon’s division bench ordered that the counter-sealed envelope containing former SSC adviser Shanti Prasad Singh’s assets not be opened.
