MPs submit plea to remove Hyderabad High Court judge(thehindu)



: Sixty-one Members of Parliament have submitted a petition to initiate removal proceedings against Justice C.V. Nagarjuna Reddy of the Hyderabad High Court, to Rajya Sabha chairperson, Hamid Ansari. Mr. Ansari is yet to give any ruling on it.

“Around 61 members of Parliament (MPs), including myself, have signed this petition. We will await his (Mr. Ansari) ruling on the matter,” Communist Party of India leader and Rajya Sabha MP D. Raja told The Hindu . Several MPs from the Telugu Desam Party were also signatories to the petition. In the petition, MPs said, “There is an allegation made by a Mr. Rama Krishna, formerly principal junior civil judge, Rayachoty, Kadapa district, currently under suspension, that he was forced by Justice C.V. Nagarjuna Reddy to remove the name of a Mr. Pavan Kumar Reddy, who happens to be the brother of Justice Reddy, from a dying declaration recorded by Mr. Rama Krishna when he was posted as magistrate at Rayachoty. Mr. Pavan Kumar Reddy is the additional public prosecutor of Rayachoty courts,” said the petition.

The dying declaration allegedly recorded by Mr Rama Krishna was made by one M. Ramanujulu, who happened to be the “servant of Mr. Pavan Reddy” and had reportedly incriminated him in a crime.

The Supreme Court on Friday came close to ordering the government not to deport the Rohingya.

It finally settled on merely observing that a balance should be struck between humanitarian concern for the community and the country's national security and economic interests.

The court was hearing a bunch of petitions, one filed by persons within the Rohingya community, against a proposed move to deport over 40,000 Rohingya refugees. A three-judge Bench, led by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, began by orally indicating that the government should not deport Rohingya “now”, but the government prevailed on the court to not pass any formal order, citing “international ramifications”.
