Government rejects Collegium's pick for High Court Judges

BEIG FILE RETURNED, J&K HC RECOMMENDATIONS BEING PROCESSED

25/06/2018
NEW DELHI, Jun 24: The Supreme Court collegium's recommendation for the appointment of two lawyers, as judges of the Allahabad High Court has been returned for the second time by the government citing complaints against them. The two lawyers are Mohammad Mansoor and Basharat Ali Khan. Mansoor is the son of former Supreme Court judge late Saghir Ahmed. The NDA government had on an earlier occasion returned the file recommending the two names, citing complaints against the candidates. But the collegium reiterated its recommendation, terming the complaints as frivolous. Last month, the recommendation was returned by the government to the collegium for reconsideration, after keeping the matter pending for over two-and-a-half years. After Justice J Chelameswar's retirement, the five-member collegium -- a body of top five Supreme Court judges -- will have to be reconstituted. The collegium, with a new member, will now have to take a call on the two names. The two lawyers have been regul...
