Indian Supreme Court Collegium Under Fire

In an unusual display of assertiveness, the nation’s top lawyers berated the Supreme Court on Saturday for its prolonged indecision on whether chief justice of Karnataka high court, P D Dinakaran, could be promoted despite allegations of corruption and land grabbing.

At a seminar on judicial reforms Fali Nariman exhorted his fraternity to keep away from the benches of even the five seniormost judges of the Supreme Court who constitute the collegium that recommended his appointment.
