HC can’t direct for judges’ inclusion in security exemption list at airports: SC

The Supreme Court on Wednesday held that judiciary cannot enter the domain of executive to direct it to include chief justices and judges of high courts in the list of people exempted from re-embarkation security checks at airports saying the “matters of security are not issues of prestige and they are not matters of ‘status’”.

The apex court faulted more than decade-old direction of Rajasthan High Court to amend a circular dated May 1, 2002 of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security to include chief justices and the judges of the high court in the list of persons exempted from re-embarkation security checks at airports. “The HC has transgressed the ‘wise and self-imposed’ restraints on the power of judicial review by entertaining the writ petition,” a bench said.
