The latest one comes from Former Judge, Justice S Reghupathi insisting that he had indeed named Raja in his letter to the then Madras High Court Chief Justice H L Gokhale. A Raja was indicted of influencing the judiciary to alter a criminal case decision against him.
Justice Reghupathi was commenting on the letter sent to the Division Bench of the Madras High Court and spoke to reporters, ''It is always there in the order itself. You have seen that. It is there in the division bench order." The apparent controversy led to the suspension of advocate R K Chandramohan as Chairman of the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. Reghupathi was the one approached by Chandramohan to secure an anticipatory bail to a father-son duo who were "family friends of a Union Minister by name Raja".
Reghupathi, in his letter dated July 7, 2009, had alleged that he had written citing the conduct of Chandramohan. Former Chief Justice of India, K G Balakrishnan insisted that the minister's name was not mentioned by Justice Gokhale in a report submitted to him.
Reghupathy said to reporters, “I am not scared, or confused and have not asked for security from anyone"
