After CJI Gogoi, Justice Sikri recuses himself from plea against appointment of interim CBI Director

Common Cause, the NGO which is the petitioner in the PIL, had also filed PILs against the appointment of Rakesh Asthana and the decision of the central government to strip Alok Verma of his post as CBI director.

After CJI Ranjan Gogoi had recused himself from hearing the Common Cause petition against the appointment of Nageshwar Rao as interim director as CBI, Justice AK Sikri has also recused himself from the matter. The matter will now be heard by a different bench on Friday.

Advocate for the petitioner, Dushyant Dave, was not pleased with the further delay and appeared to lash out at Justice Sikri. He stated that there was an impression that the Court does not wish to hear the matter and suggested that the Justices could have recused themselves earlier.

Dave also expressed frustration towards the Court for what he felt was felicitating the ouster of Alok Verma.

Common Cause, an NGO that is eligible to receive donations from abroad, has been at the heart of the battle within the CBI. As we have reported earlier, the NGO had filed a PIL against the appointment of Rakesh Asthana as Special Director of the CBI. A PIL was also filed by the NGO against the Central Vigilance Commission and Central Government’s decision to divest Alok Verma of powers as CBI Director.
