K'taka CJI under scanner for acquiring huge assets

By Super Admin

New Delhi, Sep 16: Yet another controversial row over judges' assets, senior counsel Shanti Bhushan has alleged that Chief Justice of Karnataka High Court has acquired 'huge assets' that is disproportionate to his known sources of income.

Speaking to a television channel on Wednesday, Sep 16, Shanti Bhushan said, "The Chief Justice of Karnataka High court PD Dinakaran has believed to have acquired 700 acres of land. …There are also various allegations of corruption against him."

The senior advocate also urged Chief Justice of India KG Balakrishnan to review his appointment to the Supreme Court collegium.

"So we have written to the CJI to review his appointment to the Supreme Court collegium. Such a person who has a high reputation for corruption should not have been appointed." he added.

"I am surprised why he (CJI) is insisting on the appointment of Chief Justice Dinakaran. The only reason I am seeing is that he (Dinakaran ) is a Dalit too," Shanti Bhushan said.

Further questioning the whole process of appointment of Dinakaran, he said that senior justices of Supreme Court must be consulted before taking any such decision.
