MCI bribery case : CJI Misra writes to the President regarding initiation of proceedings against Allahabad HC Judge

A reply to an RTI petition filed by Paras Nath Singh has revealed that the CJI has asked the government to initiate proceedings against the Allahabad High Court Judge, Narayan Shukla. Justice Shukla had allegedly used his office to provide temporary relief to a medical college run by Prasad education trust. The judgement had helped the education trust to admit students in spite of being derecognised by Medical Council of India. An in-house committee formed by the CJI had made adverse remarks against Justice Shukla as per media reports.

The education trust had filed an appeal in the Supreme Court and the matter had been heard by a bench led by Justice Dipak Misra in August 2017. The SC bench had asked the government to relook its order. After the revelations of bribery in Allahabad HC emerged during a CBI investigation, demand for an investigation of the SC bench had been made.

The RTI petitioner Paras Nath Singh had asked for a copy of the letter received by the President and details of file movement on the matter in President’s secretariat. He had also asked for details of the procedure followed by the President in dealing with this matter.
