Chief Justice N.V. Raman said on Friday that the government had started a new trend of defamation of judges. He called it “unfortunate.” NV Raman, who is presiding over the three-judge bench, said, “A new trend has started today. We are also looking into the court.
In fact, Justice Raman’s statement came at a time when a bench of Justices Murari and Hima Kohli was hearing an appeal against an order of the Chhattisgarh High Court. According to sources, the FIR against Aman Singh, the principal secretary to former chief minister Raman Singh, and his wife Yasmin Singh have been dismissed under the Prevention of Corruption Act. It is said that the issue was dismissed after the BJP government left and the Congress came to power.
January 10 FIR canceled
According to the information, the Economic Crimes Branch of the state police had registered an FIR on February 25, 2020 on the basis of Pakshi Sharma’s allegations. Proper Sharma demanded an inquiry into the unequal assets of Aman Singh and his wife. At the same time, on 28 February 2020, the High Court in an interim order directed that no coercive action should be taken against Aman Singh and his wife. At the same time, on January 10, 2022, the High Court quashed the FIR stating that all the allegations made by the petitioner were based on probability and no person could be judged as probable.
The CJI spoke out against the hearing of the appeal.
The High Court in its order had stated that Chief Minister Sahiya Sharma had supported the allegation, so it should be investigated. The investigation against Aman Singh started on November 11, 2019. At the same time, the state government, including the appropriate Sharma, challenged the SC in the High Court. At the same time, hearing the appeal hearing, CJI made such remarks.
