SC Judges call urgent press meet in unprecedented move

Justice Chelameswar Ranjan Gogoi Madan Lokur and Kurian Joseph at the press conference

Justice R Banumathi is the only woman among 25 judges in the top court.

The Press conference is analysed as the result of many differences and disagreements to the Supreme Court Chief Justice Deepak Mishra.

Justice Gogoi said they were "discharging debt to the nation that has got us here". "This is what we wanted to convey". "The same thing happened this morning".

Justice Gogoi said: "We are discharging our duty to the nation by telling you what's what".

# "Four of us are convinced, the democracy will not survive. Don't want people to say 20 years later that we did not take care of the institution", said justice Chelameswar.

According to sources, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has spoken to Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, about the allegations made by the four Supreme Court judges.

Death toll from California mudslide rises to 17
Winfrey shared harrowing footage of her backyard following the mudslides' roll through her neighborhood and on Tuesday. The death toll from the powerful debris flows that hit the Southern California community of Montecito has risen to 15.

The hard-hitting remarks against the CJI come on a day when Supreme Court took up for consideration the issue of alleged mysterious death of special CBI judge B H Loya, who was hearing the sensitive Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case. "He has delivered several landmark judgements while in the top court" In a landmark judgment, a three judge bench of the Supreme Court, comprising Chelameswar, Sharad Arvind Bobde, and Chokkalingam Nagappan, ratified an earlier order of the Supreme Court and clarified that no Indian citizen without an Aadhaar card can be deprived of basic services and government subsidies. In 2010, Justice Chelameswar was transferred to Kerala High Court. In 2010, he was transferred to Punjab & Haryana High Court. These traditions have their roots in the anglo-saxon jurisprudence and practice.

By convention, they have not spoken directly to press in the past, so as to appear impartial in court cases.

The chief justice's role was "not a recognition of any superior authority" over his colleagues, they added. It is too well settled in the jurisprudence of this country that the Chief Justice is only the first amongst the equals - nothing more or nothing less. Any departure from these basic tenets would, apart from chaos, create "doubt in the body politic about the integrity of the institution".

She has also served as a member of the Centre-appointed High Level Committee (HLC) in the Ministry of Law and Justice to review "Institutionalization of Arbitration Mechanism in India".

- There should be no further delay in finalising the Memorandum of Public Procedure in the larger public interest. In 2007, she became only the second woman to be designated a senior advocate by the Supreme Court.
