Meanwhile, Congress today questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi why he sent his Principal Secretary Nripendra Misra to Chief Justice Dipak Misra's residence here, a day after four senior Supreme Court judges took on Justice Misra over the allocation of benches, among other issues.
They said they agreed with the view of the rebel judges that the Chief Justice despite being the master of roster can not assign cases "in an arbitrary manner such that, sensitive and important cases are sent to hand-picked benches of junior judges by the Chief Justice".
The trigger for the press conference by the "senior four" - assigning the PIL seeking investigation into CBI judge B H Loya's death in December 2014 under allegedly suspicious circumstances - too was raised by the "junior judge".
All these matters were earlier referred to larger benches for adjudication by different benches of the apex court. The move has received mixed reactions, but a majority in the legal fraternity felt that this was a matter best resolved within the four walls of the Supreme Court. "It was a storm in a tea cup", Venugopal told a news channel. The case has been deferred as one of the judges on the bench, Justice M M Shantanagoudar, will not attend the court on Monday.
