Plots to HC judges, lawmakers: Apex court refuses to hear petition

Plots to HC judges, lawmakers: Apex court refuses to hear petition
The Supreme Court on Friday declined to entertain a PIL seeking cancellation of allotment of plots, allegedly in arbitrary and discriminatory manner, to judges of high courts of Odisha and Gujarat, by brushing aside the plea that refusal to hear the matter will send a wrong message.

‘We decline to entertain the writ petition. However, the petitioners are at liberty to approach the appropriate high courts,’ a bench of justices HL Dattu and SA Bobde said.

The bench asked the NGO, Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL), to approach the high courts for redressal of its grievances and if necessary it can come to the apex court.
